From the National Disability Insurance Scheme Campaign director, John Della Bosca:
The National Disability and Carer Alliance will next year convene The National Disability and Carer Congress: Make Every Australian Count to be held in Melbourne on May 2 and 3. Mark the date in your diaries now. Come along to this exciting event and hear from our elected representatives about their vision for people with a disability, their families and carers in this country, hear from international experts about developments in disability policy around the world and most importantly, hear from people with a disability, their families and carers about their hopes for the future.
This congress will be unlike others with many opportunities for participants to quiz presenters and engage in greater discussion and debate than is usually possible within traditional conference programs. A discounted subsidised rate will be offered for individuals with a disability and family members in order to ensure as many people as possible have the opportunity to participate. We are on the cusp of transformational change in this country – come along to the Congress and hear what it will mean for you and how you can be part of it. Registrations will open early next year – save the date and spread the word.
