A group of self advocates are in the stages of forming this. If you could fill out their survey to get some more ideas about what is required.
New research aims to explore the difficult world of caregiving
Are you a parent of someone with dyslexia, or autism? Do you care for an aged parent with a chronic illness or disability? Do you know of any family or friend who cares for someone or has been a caregiver in the past? If you are an unpaid caregiver past or present we want to hear from you.
After being hit by a car in 2003, Tracey-Lee Dalton’s world flipped upside down. Formerly she was a caregiver then in an instant became the care recipient. Now she is conducting research at The University of Auckland into caregiving and wants thousands of New Zealand caregivers to share their experience in a confidential online survey.
The New Zealand government is committed to improving the lives of caregivers and in the recent budget announced that 1600 caregivers will receive more money for working as caregivers; however, this is only 0.04 percent of the total number of caregivers in New Zealand. Less than 3% of caregivers in New Zealand are able to keep their paid jobs. Caregivers suffer financially and experience health issues, especially stress, depression and anxiety. Caregivers play a vital role in helping people with disabilities or illness to remain living at home with full lives.
If you are an adult informal caregiver (unpaid family or friend) of someone with an illness, or disability, or you have been a caregiver in the past, we want to hear from you. The University of Auckland, with the support of Carers NZ, is hoping to recruit up to 2000 caregivers. Findings from this very important study will be used to provide information on what works well to support caregivers, in order to make improvements. Informal caregivers are encouraged to complete a confidential online survey, which will take approximately 25 minutes. This study provides the opportunity for change. The survey is anonymous and can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7L3N9Q2.

You never know the day that you might need care or have to provide care. The Time to CARE is NOW!

Early Childhood Education Survey
Disability Connect devised an Early Childhood Education Survey for parents of a child aged 7 years or younger with a disability in Auckland. The survey was developed collaboratively with assistance from Auckland Council. Results are treated confidentially and the survey was completed annonymously – it took around 15 minutes to complete. The survey will provide valuable feedback to Disability Connect regarding parents’ experience of enrolment and attendance of their child in ECE, enabling Disability Connect to help lobby for fair and equitable access to ECE in Auckland for all children with a disability.
This survey is now closed. The final ECE and Disability Survey Report is available here.
