Response to the Ageing and Disability Commission’s NSW Disability Advocacy Review Issues Paper
Western Sydney Community Forum (WSCF) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the NSW Ageing and Disability Commission’s Issues Paper.
On 9 September 2019 the Ageing and Disability Commission released the NSW Disability Advocacy Review (the Review) under the first appointed NSW Ageing and Disability Commissioner Mr. Robert Fitzgerald.
This Review is providing the opportunity to analyse how the advocacy funding streams and services are delivered across the state. It also allows for the opportunity to make recommendations towards future advocacy funding under both Commonwealth and State arrangements.
This submission has been shaped by the input of the service providers across the region through consultations recently conducted by WSCF.
