Disability Reprieve

Tuesday 10 April 2018

I have been campaigning with advocates to get the government to reverse its decision to stop funding disability advocates when the NDIS rollout was complete on 1 July. Advocates can help ensure people with disability get the help they are entitled to and have been crucial to exposing systemic neglect and abuse.

The Premier’s decision to continue funding disability advocacy and information services until 2020 is a great win and I spoke at the #StandByMe rally at Parliament about the importance of ongoing funding beyond 2020.
