Getting to the venue:

There are two very large parking areas at the ASB Sports Centre, one outside and one underground. There is lift access to the meeting room.

Buses regularly stop at the Kilbirnie shops, which are 12 minutes’ walk from the ASB Sports Centre.

Confirmed participants include National candidate Nicola Willis, the Greens’ Mojo Mathers, Labour’s Grant Robertson and Ria Bond from NZ First.

At the forum we want you to ask the questions!

If you're interested in the forum but can't attend in person, submit your questions to us so they can be asked on the day - and you will then be able to listen to the answers through the Facebook live stream of the event.

We welcome questions on everything and anything to do with the disability sector, ranging from general questions such as: What is your party’s policy on employment support for people with disabilities? Through to specific questions, such as: How will your party make it easier for me to travel by bus from my home in Te Awamutu to my appointment at Waikato Hospital?

Please send your questions through to us at election@ihc.org.nz
