News from the Land of Be: January Newsletter

Welcome to our first newsletter of 2018. We trust you and your families had a restful and refreshing break, and that 2018 brings everything you wish for.

In 2017, our Be, Welcome team gained a huge amount of momentum in the Wellington region, and worked closely with our coaches in the area to bring businesses and attractions to the utmost accessibility standard.  With its many geographical challenges, Wellingtonians have remained committed to making their beautiful city the most accessible little capital in the world. Their creativity and enthusiasm has proven successful, with many Wellington businesses having received a rating of Silver or higher.

In this newsletter we tell the story of Be. Wellington; how it started and the milestones reached in the last six years. We also tell the stories of CQ Hotel and Wellington Zoo; two businesses that have completely committed to accessibility in every sense of the word.

Article 1 : The most accessible little capital: a six-year journey

Since 2011, we have been working closely with Wellington City Council and other businesses in the region to embrace accessibility. In what is one of the most geographically challenging regions in Aotearoa, we have seen these challenges be overcome through excellent leadership and creativity. Read more about Be. Wellington here…

Article 2 : CQ Hotel Wellington

CQ Hotels, in the heart of Wellington, has consistently put accessibility at the core of everything that they do, from customer service, to employment. In this case study, we look at CQ’s accessibility journey and how they have worked with Be. Accessible to turn their vision into a reality.

Article 3: Wellington Zoo’s journey to Gold

In 2017 our Wellington momentum hit a highlight when Wellington Zoo upgraded to a Gold certification. Read more about their two-year long journey in working up from the Silver rating they received back in 2015.
