April 2013

PWDA is a long standing member of the Family and Community Services – Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) Boarding House Expert Advisory Group (BHEAG), providing regular feedback to the Minister for Disability Services and ADHC with regard to policy developments relating to the licensed boarding house sector and associated Boarding House Reform Program (BHRP). PWDA continues to stand by its objections to the Boarding House Act 2012 and formulation of any supporting Regulation which promotes and condones congregate, institutional accommodation and support in exploitative, ‘for profit’ models of accommodation for people with disability.
