We are happy to find that C.A.R.D. is not the only group in Australia concerned about the privatisation of accommodation and services in Australia. In New South Wales, the group ADHC Families was set up in response to the NSW government’s plans to privatise ADHC Respite Centre’s.
“Our aim is to provide information and raise awareness about the Baird Government’s plan to privatise ADHC’s Respite Centres, Group Homes, Aged Care and associated services. Instead of increasing our options, our right to choose to stay with ADHC is being removed. Parents are being pressured to transfer to private providers and told there are ‘no guarantees’ that government run services will continue to be available in the coming years.
