Acclaim Otago


Acclaim Otago (Inc) is a support group for injured people and their families. We have written a shadow report to the United Nations which outlines issues people who are disabled by injury have and how the NZ Governements legislation and policies comply with the Convention on the Rights of People with Disability. The UN Committee has now issued a list of issues, one of which is the "Access to Justice" issue we raised in our shadow report. We are now fundraising for extra funds to allow us to travel to Geneva in September to be present when the NZ Government will respond to the UN Committee's questions.

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Acclaim Otago .
