You're invited to coffee with Whaikaha Chief Executive Paula Tesoriero

In the lead up to celebrating International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we’re inviting the community to meet and have a kōrero (chat) and a cuppa with Whaikaha Chief Executive Paula Tesoriero MNZM on: 

Wednesday 30 November in Ōtepoti (Dunedin) on Level 4 at the Alexander McMillan Suite, 301 Moray Place between 2.30pm and 3.30pm for afternoon tea.

Thursday 1 December Ōtautahi (Christchurch) at the St Martins Community Centre, 122 Wilsons Road South, St Martins between 10.00am and 11.00am for morning tea.

NZSL interpreters will be at both events.

This is a chance for people to raise any pātai (questions) or just to meet Paula kanohi ki te kanohi (face-to-face). We encourage you to head along and be part of what will be the first of many of these type of community engagements around the motu.

Capacity is limited so please register by emailing
