PWDA calls for action to embed rights and end segregation of people with disability 

People with Disability Australia (PWDA), the national cross-disability peak body and representative organisation, has reissued its call for governments to prioritise and fund action plans that support the transition away from segregated housing, employment, and education; eliminate restrictive practices; and embed and protect disability rights in domestic law. The call follows today’s release of the Public consultation on the Disability Royal Commission Summary report by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. 

Have your say on PWDA’s response to the NDIS Review.

PWDA is hosting two online consultation sessions for you – our members – to share your views on some of the changes proposed by the NDIS Review Final Report and the recently tabled NDIS Reform Bill. We want our members’ voices to be reflected in our response to the NDIS Review, submissions to the NDIS Provider and Workforce Registration Taskforce and in our advocacy to federal, state and territory governments.
