Today on the podcast I sit down with three-time bestselling author, activist and mum of two disabled tamariki, Emily Writes to talk about the recent changes to the Whaikaha (The Ministry for Disabled People) purchasing guidelines.

Some of the topics highlighted on the show:

  • How the recent Whaikaha changes came about.
  • How the changes affect disabled people and their families.
  • What we can do to advocate for ourselves and others with the government to create change?
  • Where we can go for answers to find out how these affect us or the disabled person we care for.
