"United we stand!"
Disability Carer Alliance Launched!

The Australian Federation of Disability Organisations, Carers Australia and National Disability Services have formed an alliance under the, "National Disability Carer Alliance".

The NDCA vision is an Australian society that ensures equal social, economic, civic and cultural participation of people with disability, their families and carers.

LISA Comment: Government gag funding and group fighting keep governments and bureaucrats safe from consolidated action to address Australia's inequitable, fractured, under-resourced and slowly collapsing under the weight of its own inadequacies disability support system, while sub-optimally consuming billions of dollars of taxpayers' money each year!

The NDCA will complement the national roles of its constituent bodies by uniting and strengthening the voice of the disability sector on major issues of common concern, such as the very important "National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)".

The NDIS should certainly give people with a disability and their families an entitlement to services, rather than the present "hand-out" services. Nevertheless, having a right to a service, does not mean it will be right!

Although we congratulate the peaks on the alliance, we question the ability of the NDCA to get down to the basic but very complex issues caring parents face in attempting to ensure their vulnerable family member is receiving true quality of life care whenever they are no longer able to provide this, for those in a service and for those who have no family or other independent of service provider support.
