Pleas for Premier to reverse disability funding cuts as pressure mounts

The state government is under increasing pressure to reverse a total funding cut to dozens of NSW organisations that advocate for people with a disability, as Queensland follows suit and the state opposition commits to maintaining the funding.

About 50 NSW groups advocating for people with disabilities receive $13 million a year from the state government, but Fairfax Media revealed at least half face imminent wipe out as the government transfers disability funding to the national disability insurance scheme next July.
