Seems the NSW government still thinks that the NDIS will cover everyone and everything for disability needs, although we may be lucky enough to get continued funding post 2020, ‘if they dont’.

A lot more work to be done to help the Premier understand who is supported by the NDIS and who is not, it seems.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian talking about how important disability advocacy funding is in NSW, to make sure that people with disability don't fall through the gaps. #StandByMe NSW Disability Advocacy Alliance She said: "what you don't want is people falling through the gaps. Sometimes, people have the benefit of someone who can advocate for them but not everybody has an advocate who can do that, that's why it's important for people to not fall through the cracks" http://standbyme.org.au/

NSW Disability Advocacy Alliance shared Physical Disability Council of NSW's post.
Look at what systemic #advocacy can achieve!

#StandbymeNSW alliance members, the Physical Disability Council of NSW, today had the honour of being a part of the opening of lifts to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Inclusion for people with disability often means, as in this case, access for all - parents with prams, the elderly and their families and friends.

After many years of advocating for the step free access project; working with government, local councils, the heritage office, Roads and Maritime Services and wonderful project team to assist with access needs we can finally say the Sydney Harbour Bridge truly is #everybodysbridge.

“Without disability advocacy services many people with disability will fall through the gaps, ending up in hospital, homeless or in the legal system,” NSW Disability Advocacy Alliance #StandByMe spokesperson Serena Ovens said. https://t.co/9NJjw7Jt2e
