Acclaim Otago (Inc) Access to Justice New Zealand survey

https://www.surveymo...sticenewzealand

Acclaim Otago (Inc) is a support group for injured people and their families. We have been an incorporated society since May 2003.

The UN Committee on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) has asked the New Zealand government to explain whether people with disabilities covered by ACC have access to justice.

The Committee's response means the government will now be required to engage in a debate about how access to justice for people covered by ACC can be improved.

This questionnaire gives you the opportunity to provide information and detail about your experiences with access to justice.

We understand that the survey asks you for (at times) relatively detailed information that may not be readily at hand. We would sincerely appreciate it if you could answer the survey as accurately as possible.

The individual results of this survey will in NO WAY be shared with ACC and NO identifying information will be released to ACC. The aggregated information will be used to identify access to justice issues with the ACC scheme. Your current and future entitlements will not be affected by filling in this survey. All information is for statistical purposes only.

You have the choice of remaining anonymous. The names of survey respondents are not collected by this survey unless your email address includes your name (e.g. [email protected]), and no personal information will be used in the reporting of results. If you do wish to be contacted with further projects, you can leave your email address at the end of this survey. Acclaim will not pass your email address to any third parties without first asking for your informed consent. If you want to be part of further surveys, but don't feel comfortable leaving your email address in the survey, you can send an email to [email protected], with the subject line "Add me", and we will add you to the list.

We are raising funds to send two representatives to the United Nations in September so if you would like to assist us with that we have a page on Give A Little for donations for the UN Project.

By completing the survey you give consent for your responses to be collected and used for the purpose of statistical reporting of the data collected.

Support group for ACC claimants receives financial backing

Acclaim Otago is interested in hearing from ACC claimants who are keen to contribute to a shadow report to be presented to the UN in September.

The support group for ACC claimants was awarded the New Zealand Law Foundation Shadow Report Award last year, worth $10,000, to produce and present a report on how well New Zealand complies with UN conventions on disability.

Interested parties can answer an online survey, which consists of nine questions, asking for responses on issues including their experience during the ACC claim process as well as their personal perceptions of how ACC works.

Dunedin-based disability rights advocate Warren Forster says the survey aims to cover the extent to which ACC claimants get access to justice.

In September the UN will be examining the New Zealand Government about whether its laws and policies comply with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, Mr Forster, one of the lead authors of the report, says in a media release.

“This is your opportunity to have your voice heard,” he says.

The survey will close on Friday 13 June.

Thank you to all of you who have completed our latest survey re "access to justice". The survey will be online until the end of this week and we are a bit short of our target of 1000 responses. If you haven't completed the survey yet I encourage you to do so. It will take between 15-20 minutes and will provide much needed real evidence about the current state of access to justice for ACC clients. If you are a treatment provider/advocate/lawyer we would very much appreciate you forwarding to your clients.

We will be compiling the shadow report during the second half of June so your help in this is very much appreciated.

Kind regards,
Denise
