The Dis­abil­ity Ac­tion Group is seek­ing new mem­bers to help it take pos­i­tive ac­tion and make a dif­fer­ence on Far North dis­abil­ity is­sues. The group is keen to hear from po­ten­tial mem­bers who have dis­abil­i­ties, are se­nior cit­i­zens or who work to sup­port those with dis­abil­i­ties. ’’The Dis­abil­ity Ac­tion Group works with the Far North Dis­trict Coun­cil to ad­vo­cate for a more ac­ces­si­ble en­vi­ron­ment for Far North res­i­dents and visi­tors with dis­abil­i­ties,’’ says chair­per­son, David Se­nior, who has lived with blind­ness since a young age. The group meets ev­ery sec­ond month at dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions across the dis­trict and pro­vides an al­lowance to help mem­bers cover the costs of trav­el­ling to meet­ings. Con­tact David Se­nior 09 408 4135.
