DPA will be writing a post-election briefing to the new Minister for Disability Issues to let them know the disabled community’s views.

The new minister will be appointed once a Government is in place after the 14 October election.

There will be an official government briefing prepared for the new Minister by Whaikaha – Ministry of Disabled People after the election. However, DPA’s briefing will be different as it will be our voice as disabled people coming through directly to the new minister.

It's important to us that the briefing represents members' views on priorities. We'd welcome you getting in touch with us and sharing what you think should be in the briefing.

When Priyanca Radakrishnan became Minister of Disability Issues in February 2023, DPA sent her a briefing on her appointment. Read the DPA briefing sent to Minister of Disability Issues, Priyanca Radakrishnan.
