PWDA has co-signed statement calling to end Centrelink automated debt recovery.

PWDA, as part of Disabled People's Organisations Australia, has co-signed a statement calling for the end of the Centrelink automated debt recovery.

The beginning of the statement, published on the Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) website, says:

“A consortium of leading organisations from Australia’s community sector is calling on the government to immediately pull the plug on Centrelink’s RoboDebt, cease the intimidation and bullying of Centrelink clients and their families caught up in the automated debt recovery debacle, and provide a commitment that people’s protected information will not be publicly released.

Spokesperson for the group Cassandra Goldie, CEO of ACOSS, says the Minister for Human Services Alan Tudge must respond to people’s very real concerns about privacy, particularly with the opening of the Senate inquiry into Centrelink and the flawed RoboDebt scheme.”
