A New Approach to Disability Coverage

RNZ National is moving to a new way of reporting on disability issues. From 2016 we'll be mainstreaming our disability coverage, to bring stories to a wider audience across both our radio and digital platforms.  You'll see more of our disability stories here and hear them on Spectrum, New Zealand Society and within our award-winning News programmes, Checkpoint and Morning Report. We still want you to get in touch to share your stories and tell us the kind of issues you want to see examined. You can email us at our new, dedicated address: disability@radionz.co.nz
