I remain concerned that people with disability continue to access advocacy for the support they need under the National Disability Insurance Scheme after 1 July when the NSW Government plans to stop funding disability advocacy services. Unfortunately the minister’s response to my question in Parliament makes it clear that people with disability will be left completely under NDIS control. My question is HERE. I hope that NDIS funding through the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building program will provide funding for independent advocacy services: www.ndis.gov.au.
NDIS is a Commonwealth program so I’ve asked the federal minister to ensure adequate funding HERE. This is particularly important for early intervention support for children with disability, which significantly affects their future, information HERE.
