PWDA Election Disability Issues Scorecard

PWDA sent its election platform (see below) to a Australia’s major parties and several key independents to clarify their policy positions across seven issues which are important to people with disability. We have have created a scorecard to summarise their responses to these election commitments.

You can review and download the PWDA Election 2022 Disability Issues Scorecard here.

Full responses from all respondents are also available in the PWDA Election 2022 Disability Survey Report. The Greens have also provided additional clarification in their ‘Greens statement of support for PWDA election platform’.

PWDA’s Election Platform

We want the next federal government to deliver people with disability better protection from COVID, better jobs and financial security, better housing and better support through the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Election Participation and Disability Webinars

On 26 April and 16 May 2022, we hosted webinars with the Australian Electoral Commission to help empower people with disability to participate in the upcoming federal election. We discuss voting issues for people with disability and how you can participate in the election on 21 May.

We partnered with Dr George Taleporos to share the Election 2022 special series of the Reasonable and Necessary podcast.

You can watch the entire series on the PWDA Facebook page, with guests including Minister for the NDIS Linda Reynolds, Shadow Minister for the NDIS Bill Shorten, and Australian Greens Spokesperson on Disability Rights and Services Jordon Steele-John.  The final podcast features a panel of disability experts (including our very own PWDA President Sam Connor) who unpack the commitments and provide their insights.
