From March to July 2023, PWDA conducted consultations with people with disability on their experiences of the NDIS. This involved several focus groups and surveys on the experiences of people with disability with the NDIS (including one Easy Read version). Participants in these consultations primarily involved people with disability with a broad array of experiences. Some families, carers and support people of also participated in the surveys and focus groups, but represented a small percentage of participants and predominantly participated as representatives of people with disability.
We are keen to hear from PWDA members and stakeholders, including people with disability, partners, funders, community members and disability, health and aged care service providers.
PWDA’s Submission to the National Housing and Homelessness Plan Issues Paper
PWDA welcomes the opportunity to provide preliminary comments on the New South Wales Law Reform Commission’s (NSWLRC) review of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW) (ADA).
As Disability Representative Organisations, we jointly acknowledge there will come a time when we will need to discuss the response to the final recommendations of the Disability Royal Commission, with the people who have been the most hurt at the heart of this response. We will do this in our own time, and our own space.
It is time to honour our fundamental human rights. It is time to respect the stories we have shared. Hear us. The time for justice, for healing to begin, is now. We demand nothing less.
Disability Representative Organisations (DROs) and other individuals and organisations supporting this submission welcome the opportunity to provide feedback on the exposure draft of the Disability Services and Inclusion Bill 2023.
