Despair! The International Day for People with Disability
The newspaper ad link appeared on page 6 of the SA Advertiser today.
We hope the 400,000 readers and our political leaders pause on this special day to contemplate the dire situation many in the Disability sector face.
The Disability Crisis in SA is not fixed.
Despite the current SA Premier Jay Weatherill and his team delivering the best additional funding in decades, reality is the problems are rapidly escalating.
The data in the ad is current and disturbing.
There have been two avoidable fatalities in SA on recent years attributable to lack of service availability.
As it was set up, NDIS is being slow played and people with disability remain at massive risk.
We ask on this special day our political leaders to publicly confirm in a bi partisan manner their commitment to the fastest possible resolution of this crisis.
Chair - Disability Speaks Steering Committee & Intellectual Disability Association of S.A (IDASA)
