Over the next 5 weeks we will ask for your feedback on the government's proposed changes to disability support. Each week we will be asking you to share your thoughts and experiences on a different topic here. This week we are focusing on the Disability Support Pension (DSP).
Some questions are: How will the proposed budget changes to the DSP affect you or your family? The Interim Report on Welfare Reform has suggested the DSP only be available for people with ‘Permanent’impairment. How do you feel about this? How would you or your family be affected if you were moved off the DSP to a different or lower payment?
You can read more about the DSP budget proposals here.
Your opinions and concerns will be included in our submissions to the Welfare Reform process, in our responses to media and our representation and meetings with decision makers, including parliamentarians. You can also complete this short survey to give your feedback on the budget measures and the welfare reform or email Kate Finch, Advocacy Projects Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
