We put out a media release on March 11, calling for the Federal Government to include people with disability in the planning about how to respond to this new virus, and another on March 19 asking for specific measures to protect our community. For more details on what we’re asking the government to do, check out our COVID-19 Disability Plan post.

We’ve also signed on to a call for the Australian Senate to establish a Select Committee with broad powers to review and report on the Federal Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
