Frequently Asked Questions

Is the conference free to attend?

The conference entry fee is $100 (+gst) per attendee (excludes Support Person). The only costs that are required to be covered by attendees would be around other services such as accommodation, travel and personal assistive services.

How would we be able to fundraise for these costs?

This is dependent on each individual and how they fund most of their assistive services. For more information, contact jamiem@yesdisability.org.nz to discuss how you can use your personalised funding schemes to cover the costs of the conference.

Do I have to stay for BOTH days?

It is a requirement that those who are looking to attend the conference are able to attend for BOTH days as the nature of the conference deals with some 'big picture' issues that require a lot of commitment, focus and input.
