"Every New Zealander should be able to fully participate in society, have the opportunity to learn, to get a job, and to take part in community and social life. Without government action to ensure all businesses, buildings, and services are accessible, one in four of us continue to be excluded from accessing or fully participating in parts of life that other Kiwis take for granted." -The Access Alliance

Sign Equity is a Certified Social Enterprise
What does this mean?
Social Enterprises are purpose-driven organisations that trade to deliver positive social, cultural and environmental impact. They are often profit-making businesses, but they reinvest profit in their purpose. A good way to think about them is that they have the ‘mind of a business and the heart of a charity’
