Sen Jan McLucas on World Down Syndrome Day and the NDIS becoming law today

Media release, 21 March 2013

Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers, Senator Jan McLucas is today celebrating World Down Syndrome Day.

World Down Syndrome Day, held on 21 March each year, is a United Nations sanctioned day which provides an opportunity for people to learn more about Down syndrome and to recognise the contribution people with Down syndrome make in our society.

Senator McLucas said that today was a great opportunity for people in Australia—and beyond—to take the time to become more aware about Down syndrome.

“World Down Syndrome Day is a time to recognise and celebrate the contributions people with Down syndrome make to our community,” Senator McLucas said.

...  “In a truly historic moment, the NDIS Bill has passed the House of Representatives with a unanimous vote, and has this morning passed into law.

“The National Disability Insurance Scheme Bill brings us one step closer to ensuring that all Australians have the support they need to reach their full potential.”
