'Finally a more caring, equitable approach'

An opinion piece from Community Disability Alliance Hunter:

Linda Hughes and Catherine Mahony, Newcastle Herald, May 15, 2013

It’s hard to remember a time when disability was in the headlines as often as it is these days.

Even better, it’s featuring in a good news story of bipartisan support for a social reform that will dramatically and positively change the lives of over 400,000 Australians.

... In less than two months, DisabilityCare will become a reality, which Hunter residents with disability and their families will be among the first to experience. ... For the people with disability and families whom (the Prime Minister) has met, as well as for thousands of Hunter residents, the National Disability Insurance Scheme will change lives in ways we have not yet begun to imagine
