International Day of People With Disability

December 03, 2019

Today is International Day of People with Disability and what better time to recognise the incredible contribution of not only Australians living with a disability, but also their carers and service providers.

Today is also an important opportunity to reflect on how we as a country should be doing better to support people with disability.

The way we support Australians with disabilities is broken. The NDIS is underfunded and becoming a burden for too many of the people it was created to support. I've heard too many stories from my constituents about how they've had to struggle with the NDIS just to get the basic care they need.

We can do better and we must do better. This Government has an obligation to fix the NDIS, starting by funding it properly instead of ripping money out of the scheme to prop up the budget.

Australians with disability deserve better.
