Napier Disability Strategy logo

Whenever you see this logo, you will know the information is about disability matters in Napier that Council is working on.

The logo draws inspiration from the existing Napier City Council logo, using the waves/water pattern to depict fingerprints. Everyone’s fingerprints are unique, so too are people’s needs and obstacles. No one person, challenge or ability are the same and we recognise and respect that. You can read the full Napier Disability Strategy here.

For more information about Accessible Napier please contact Napier City Council on 06 835 7579 or email Below is some information and links about amenities and services available to people with disabilities in Napier.
