Ministry of Disabled People launches today

From Afternoons, 1:30 pm on 1 July 2022

Whaikaha - Ministry of Disabled People launched today.

Almost a quarter of New Zealanders live with some kind of disability. It's the first Ministry that will have a NZ Sign Language name, as well as Te Reo Māori and English names. 

Prudence Walker is the Chief Executive at Disabled Persons Assembly. She was at the launch this morning, and she talks to Charlotte about the new Ministry of Disabled People.
