In this edition, there's information on the way PWDA is supporting the residents of Miller Lodge Boarding House, in NSW, that is closing down, a new push for a Royal Commission into violence and abuse

of people with disability, and a response to the recent Federal Budget. There's also links to interesting news articles, and a foreword from President Bonnie Millen.

PWDA, as part of Disabled People’s Organisations Australia (DPO Australia), welcomes some big wins for people with disability in tonight’s Federal Government Budget, but is very concerned by the punitive approach to welfare support that will make life harder for those doing it tough, including people with disability.
