The State Liberal Party releases its disability policy
Monday 6 April 2009
The core of the South Australian Liberal Party’s just-released platform is individualised funding – i.e., each person will have a personal support plan and can choose who will support them and how.
It’s a model used elsewhere. We in the Society have wondered if it would improve services for our members. Have a look and send us any feedback:
And here’s the message that came with the document:
To South Australian disability service providers,
The Liberal Party is pleased to release our policy on Individualised Funding – our first policy in disability services for the 2010 election. Attached is a copy of the policy for your information.
Non-government organisations will be crucial to the success of Individualised Funding. People with disabilities using Individualised Funding will only have real choice if there are a broad range of service providers available to them.
The Liberal Party is determined that the implementation of Individualised Funding will support the sustainability of non-government organisations. In this regard, I refer you to page 8 of the attached policy which includes specific commitments to this end.
Leading up to the next election and beyond, I would welcome any feedback or suggestions that you would have on any aspect of disability services in South Australia.
