Wheelchair users’ experience of community inclusion following the Canterbury earthquakes

This survey aims to find out about how wheelchair users have experienced community inclusion in the four years following the September 2010 Canterbury earthquake. This information can help local authorities understand the important factors for wheelchair users as communities rebuild.

Although this survey is framed around the Christchurch earthquakes, we are interested in hearing from people who live in all parts of New Zealand. This will help us to understand any differences in the experience of community inclusion between wheelchair users who live in in Christchurch, and those who live in communities outside of Christchurch. The survey should take around 20-30 minutes to complete. You can read a detailed information sheet by clicking here.

Your participation is completely voluntary. If you would like a hard copy of the survey sent to you, or you have any questions about the survey, please contact John Bourke on 021 112 5596, or email john.bourke@pg.canterbury.ac.nz

To be eligible to participate in the survey you need to be a wheelchair user living in New Zealand. <
