This year, we want to see all political parties commit to putting people with disability at the heart of their agenda, committing to measures that will demonstrate that we are fully included in Australia.

We want to see the NDIS fixed, so people with disability are in the driving seat, in charge and creating change. We want to share in the benefits of having a job, such as financial security and being part of the community.

We want the safety net to be reformed so it is fair for us all, and essential income support is accessible for everyone who needs it. We want fair access to justice, and a fully funded and resourced Royal Commission into violence against us.
