Don't Silence Us

 

Dont Silence Us

 

The voices of people with intellectual disability risk being silenced if the NSW Government does not urgently restore the advocacy funding of the Council for Intellectual Disability (CID).

 

CID along with many other disability organisations will lose all their disability advocacy funding next year.

The decision-makers on restoring funding are our local NSW Members of Parliament. We need to speak to them now – before the holiday break.

Can you phone your local MP? Can you email them? Can you arrange to visit them?

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.
