Vaka Tautua encourages nominations for
The Attitude Awards 2014
Thursday 10 July
Press Release | Vaka Tautua
It is that time of the year again where nominations are being called for The Attitude
Awards 2014. Vaka Tautua proudly support the awards and strongly encourages the
Pacific community to nominate someone who has done something amazing whilst also
living with a disability.
The annual Attitude Awards pay tribute to people living with a disability, whether they be
artists, sportsmen or musicians and others, whose extraordinary talents have often been
failed to be recognised by New Zealand society.
The awards also pay tribute to the employers, carers and family members who work
alongside people with disabilities enabling them to satisfy the opportunities that they’re
lives have to offer.
Vaka Tautua has a Disability Information Advice and Support team whose key function
is to provide information, advice and support in all areas of a Pacific disabled person’s life,
from accessing equipment, building ramps, dispelling negative belief systems and
accessing financial support.
