Making Northland Accessible

Accessibility is when everyone can access places, services, and information with ease and dignity.

Many people in our communities have disabilities and access needs. People with access needs include people with disabilities, older adults, whanau with young children, and people with language difficulties.

The four Northland councils are working together to support accessibility in Te Tai Tokerau.

We want your input as someone who has experienced barriers to accessibility. And we want you to participate in the way that best suits you. There are some options below for you to choose from. If none of these suit, you can email [email protected] or call into your local council service centre anywhere in Northland for more information.
