Carer of a person with disability
I have a daughter with an Intellectual disability and I her mother am her full time carer.
Over a number of years Action for People with Disabilies has been providing quality Indivifual Advocacy for housing,day program, respite and other important issues that all had a positive outcome for my daughter. The focus of funding must be on knowledgeable and experienced Individual Advocacy.. All advocacy services should look towards the advocacy which Action for People with Disabilities provides. They are State funded and their funding ends June 2018 and Commonwealth funding should be provided to ensure that Action for People with Disabilities continues.
Many families support Action for People with Disabilities continuing Commonwealth funding and I will forward 702 signatures in agreement with my submission.
