PWD'S Election Platform
PWDA’s 2015 NSW Election Platform focuses on a socially just, accessible and inclusive NSW community. Our Platform identifies five key areas which we believe should be prioritised by the NSW Government during
this time of significant change in the disability landscape. They are:
Realise inclusion - through the full implementation of the National Disability Strategy in NSW
Deliver disability support – with person-centred disability support services provided in a diverse, sustainable and competitive market
Living in the Community – addressing the systemic barriers that exclude people with disability from living in the community
We call on all candidates and parties to commit to addressing these issues, and taking the recommended actions. The actions are by no means exhaustive, but provide a basic framework within which candidates and parties can elaborate.
