Joint statement on ADHC transfer

From NSW Council for Intellectual Disability (CID), Facebook post:
Together with our colleagues from Family Advocacy, NCOSS and Carers NSW, CID has today released a Joint Position Statement outlining concerns with the transfer process ... Next week we meet with ADHC representatives to discuss these recommendations and we will keep you updated on our progress.
Joint Position Statement - ADHC Transfer
NSW Council for Intellectual Disability Council, 6 May 2016
We are very concerned that the NSW Government’s process for transition out of service provision is based on ADHC choosing a person’s new service provider rather than that choice being made by people with disability with support as appropriate from their families and other advocates.

However, we are now focusing on recommendations that we can make aimed at the Government’s process including maximum input by people with disability and their families and achieving important goals such as a diverse market of service providers, meeting complex needs and maintenance of vital ADHC services that will not be continued by the National Disability Insurance Agency ... read the full statement and recommendations here, on the NSW CID website.
