“DISABILITY SPEAKS” from South Australia of, “The widespread concern that the Federal Government has no real intention of attacking the disability crisis in the short term is increasing.
The government while positive in its rhetoric is being highly selective in which parts of the report it wants to highlight and action and of course all this is being done under an umbrella of secrecy of how the Prime Minister intends to pay for the $6.5 billion dollar per annum bill.
Until the Prime Minister details a funding model the chances of NDIS ever happening remains effectively zero.
It’s time to find out how serious Julia is about NDIS. The disability sector cannot wait another 8 years subject to the vagaries of politics and the economy for a solution.”
“LISA INC.” from Victoria says, “This is because ‘Disability’ has a very low profile!"
This is demonstrated in Victoria, where group home supported accommodation is a despotic lottery. Where the lives of disadvantaged people are totally controlled by a government department power broker – the DSR.
If the residents of both government and non-government group homes were given the "service bulk funding" in an ISP, they could have choice of service provider right now.
