I thought I’d share this message from our Disability Commissioner, Paula Tesoriero outlining her progress since taking up the role in August this year. It’s well worth a read.

Kia ora koutou,

I’m now into my fifth month as Disability Rights Commissioner. Before we all head away for some well-deserved time off over Christmas, I wanted to give you an overview of the first four months of my role. You can read my reflections here.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to help me settle into the role of Disability Commissioner over this time, and to those of you I haven’t yet met with, I look forward to meeting you soon.

I hope you all have a relaxing festive season and look forward to continuing to work with you in 2018 to shift the dial for disabled New Zealanders.

Kind regards,

Paula Tesoriero MNZM

New Zealand Disability Rights Commissioner
