Fourth round of survey now open

We’re running our survey – “How life is going for the disability community” again now that we have had some time to settle into Level 1.

We want to know about the issues and risks being experienced by disabled people and their whānau/families in the COVID-19 environment.

It is also important to hear from service providers and others in the disability sector. This will help us understand which issues require more work. It will also help us understand which issues are being managed effectively and the progress being made.

The survey will run from Tuesday 30 June until Monday 13 July inclusive.

Afterwards, we will analyse the results, and report them to government agencies, disability organisations and the Minister for Disability Issues.

We want to understand where progress is being made and where more action is required.

What is covered in the survey

Questions in this survey cover different topics, including information, safety, and how you are going. Some of these questions may bring up difficult feelings or thoughts, so we have provided links to information about these issues at the end of the survey.
