Meeting with Minister For Disabilities

22nd November 2017

Last week Stephen Dawson offered a warm welcome to ten of our group. Topics included:

Transition (forced privatisation of DSC group homes)

1.Gratitude for Stephen fulfilling his promise to halt Transition, as promised when shadow minister.

2.Transition’s legacy.

3. Call for assessment/enquiry into the Transition process, to prevent similar issues arising again.


Issues raised but time did not allow for discussion. Stephen agreed to have his staff follow up.

1. Lack of age-appropriate accommodation facilities for younger physically disabled adults.

(Aged Care facilities cope with the physical but not mental, emotional  or social needs)

2.The issue of ‘the too hard basket’. What will happen when an individual cannot have his/her needs met by an NGO.
