We’re relieved by today’s announcement that #disability #advocacy will be funded for the next three years, and that the government has demonstrated its commitment to independent advocacy. This ends more than three years of funding uncertainty.

This funding will work towards guaranteeing the future of independent advocacy in NSW, ensuring that people with a disability will continue to have access to a voice and support when they need it most.

We thank the NSW Government, and Gareth Ward for their support of advocacy and their commitment to people with disability through funding the sector.

This is a win for people with disability in NSW who rely on advocacy, and who have campaigned tirelessly for this funding.

We look forward to better understanding the detail of this important funding announcement and working with the government to co-design the new Disability Advocacy Futures Program based on the independent review undertaken by the NSW Ageing and Disability Commissioner a year ago.

Funding for #disability #advocacy is a smart investment- it sorts issues out early, helps people with disability to live healthily and happily, and saves governments money.

Fingers crossed for good news in the budget tomorrow - certainty for people with disability in NSW that advocacy is here to stay!

Advocates are there to be in your corner and be a voice for you when you need one. We need to know that they're here to stay.

Independent #disability #advocacy should always be there as a safety net, for anyone who needs it.

Advocacy matters.

Independent #disability #advocacy provides a valuable service to good governments, by advising them on how to improve services and programs for people with disability.

A loss of advocacy funding would be disastrous for people with disability in NSW.

That's why we're asking the NSW Government to secure the future of independent #disability #advocacy in the budget on Nov 17.
