Print off this PDF and show it to at least one business you use today and ask them to register with the Hāpai Access Card - it is free.

 

Tell the business that:

  • Businesses that are accessible to people with disability attract them and their family's spend - the Purple Dollar. 

  • The Human Rights Act makes discrimination unlawful when it occurs in the provision of goods and services. Poor accessibility, and not just physical - is an act of discrimination.

  • According to the 2013 Census, 23% of New Zealanders are disabled - people do care about accessibility. It is a social issue where business can have a significant impact.
