It all started one Christmas morning three years ago when now 15-year-old, Australian Connor Mcleod was given some money inside a card. He had no idea how much it was and how generous or tight the present-giver had been. Being blind from birth, Connor was frustrated and slightly embarrassed by this gift and decided in that moment to do something about it.

CCS Disability Action is pleased the government is continuing to reform disability support services. The government has decided to pilot a new approach around Palmerston North. This new approach will be based on everything learnt in previous pilots.

The popular My Rights! workshops are now running a further two sessions in Christchurch. The events, which are targeted at young people aged 13-35 who experience impairment or disability, are free and explore subjects such as employment, health and education and much, much more.

Want to try public transport in a relaxed and fun environment. Join us on 11 February in Melling Station Lower Hutt.
