The Origins of Social Credit
Development of modern banking has resulted in nations losing the power to issue most of their own money. The financial system, worldwide, is based on debt.

Disabilities

Our aim is to ensure that disabled people are enabled to fully participate within their communities, 


· We will establish a properly funded Disability agency which will report directly to the Minister for Social Development.  It shall be responsible for monitoring the disability sector and for establishing a national plan to improve the position of disabled people in society.


· We will continue to encourage improved facilities for disabled access to buildings and open spaces open to the public.


· We will assist Local Bodies with finance for disabled-accessible public transport vehicles and for other necessary services to enable disabled people to attend workplaces and educational and recreational facilities.


· All disabled people shall be entitled to continuing assistance comparable to that available to those with similar disabilities to those injured in accidents and eligible for benefits under ACC.


· Employers of disabled staff will be eligible to receive interest-free loans to assist with necessary modifications of workplace equipment.


· We will ensure that helpers employed to assist disabled people will be adequately trained and remunerated accordingly.


- Our emphasis in special education at all levels for those who by reason of substantial physical or mental disabilities need special care and attention will be to develop (in a normal education environment where it is reasonable to do so) the individual as a worthwhile, respected member of the community contributing as much to it as the disabilities allow.

 

- We will help provide the material facilities required for people with genuine needs resulting from a disability to live in dignity and security.

 

- Where our adequate living income policy does not provide sufficient income to enable those with genuine needs resulting from disability to maintain the quality of living they would otherwise enjoy, a supplementary allowance will be made to them on a case by case basis.
