Accessibility refers to physical access as well as access to information and access to participation. This is important because not only is accessibility a human right, it is also good for communities and businesses. 


This is a list of some of the many resources or organisations that focus on accessibility.  We will add to this list as we source more resources to share. We also welcome any feedback. 

Web accessibility is about inclusion — making sure everyone, including disabled people and those using assistive technologies, can access online information and services.


"Anyone — particularly in government — who delivers a service to the public has a responsibility to make sure information can be accessed by everyone. Online content must be accessible to provide equal access and equal opportunity to disabled people. It’s a human right."

The Total Mobility scheme is a national scheme which supports people who cannot use public transport to travel, all or some of the time.

In Auckland, those who are eligible get a subsidised rate on contracted taxis for door to door transport, and an accessible concession loaded on a Total Mobility AT HOP card used to pay for discounted travel on public transport.

Total Mobility customers receive a 75% discount off taxi fares, up to a maximum fare cap of $80 per trip. For trips over $80, Auckland Transport will only pay a maximum subsidy of $60 subsidy.

You are eligible if you meet the following criteria:

  1. You are unable to walk and always require the use of a wheelchair, or

  2. Your ability to walk distances is severely restricted by a medical condition or disability.

  3. You have a medical condition or disability that requires you to have physical contact or close supervision to safely get around and cannot be left unattended. 


Your medical practitioner needs to confirm your eligibility unless you are renewing a long-term permit.

The Accessibility Tick Programme helps New Zealand organisations become more accessible and inclusive of people with disabilities. 


When they have their own programme in place, they may seek to be awarded the Accessibility Tick.


The tick is a public recognition of an organisation’s ongoing commitment to becoming accessible and inclusive of people with disabilities.
