From NSW Ageing, Disability and Home Care:
The Disability Services Act 1993 (the Act) is being reviewed. A total of 600 people attended 25 public consultation session and 64 written submissions were received. The Feedback summary paper on the reform of NSW disability laws (PDF) is now available on the ADHC website.
Some recurring ideas that were raised include:
- that laws should better define disability and support with a focus on needs and not what a person’s disability is
- people should be able to choose where they receive services
- that laws should work towards building a community that includes everyone.-
