Disabled Persons Assembly

Disabled Persons Assembly

DPA New Zealand is a Disabled Person’s Organisation (DPO) that includes all disability groups.

What we do:

To ensure your voice is heard, and to advance your aspirations, we work with and help you work with:

  • government
  • your local community
  • the general public
  • the media, and
  • disability service providers.

Important information about us:

  • We work in collaboration with others to achieve inclusion for all New Zealanders. DPA  is all about advocacy.
  • Your impairment could be physical or sensory, you may have a learning disability or experience of mental illness or your disability could be neurological, health or age-related.
  • We project an active, independent voice that reflects your aspirations, your concerns and your rights.
  • Every disabled person is listened to, as are all organisations within our disability community.
  • DPA has a system of membership at a local and national structure.
  • DPA members are scattered throughout the country.
  • Most are affiliated to regional groups called regional assemblies and include people with disabilities and others such as family, Disabled People's Organisations (DPO’s) and disability service providers.
