The Coalition government has well and truly run out of excuses for failing to provide secure long-term funding for independent disability advocacy services.

Tonight I called the Government out on the harm that their continued failure causes to people with disability in our state. Our motion calling on the Government to urgently fund the sector was again passed by the Upper House. #StandByMe
