About the forum

Accessibility for all is a forum that examines the accessibility for everyone in the tasman region, aiming to ensure that both public and private facilities and activities are inclusive.

The forum also works on developing practical solutions to accessibility barriers in consultation with Council projects.

Good Access = Good Business

During 2012, the A4A members were working on an accessibility checklist for businesses. The resulting brochure was launched at the December meeting of the forum. The brochure was produced with support from Nelson City Council and Tasman District Council.

Accessible beach chairs

A4A with help from CCS Disability Action, successfully sought funding in 2011 to purchase accessible beach chairs. These can be loaned out from CCS Disability Action in Nelson.
