Media releases

This submission was submitted in February 2019, and takes it as a given that the government will work to appropriately implement recommendations upheld through disability related inquiries, such as those on hearing health, access to electronic media, migration laws and disability. It is particularly important that the introduction of any recommended programs is undertaken in consultation with people with disability and their representative disabled person’s organisations.

AFDO expects people with disability and their organisations to be consulted during the roll out process of the National Disability Strategy and any reform of the National Disability Agreements, a lack of Key Performance Indicators and a short term implementation plan make budget submission requests difficult.
