11 Update to the Disability Action Plan The Office for Disability Issues is running a public consultation on behalf of the Disabled People’s Organisations and government agencies involved with the Disability Action Plan. It is the first time they have consulted the community as part of a Plan update, which will now happen every year. We have an opportunity to provide feedback on priorities and actions in the Disability Action Plan. Unfortunately there is a very tight turn-around for this request with feedback due to the Office for Disability Issues on September 22nd. NZNO has requested an extension to the due date but this was declined. We will be making a brief submission and encourage you to also do the same directly at: Disability Action Plan 2014-2018 Please send comments to Jillc@nzno.org.nz by 22 September, 2015.
