NSW Government funds new $13 million Disability Advocacy Futures Program

01 October 2021

People with disability will be better equipped to access services and support under the NSW Government’s new $13 million Disability Advocacy Futures Program.

The program will help organisations to provide advocacy services to more than 1.4 million people with disability in NSW.

The initiative is to meet the requirements of a review into disability advocacy by NSW Ageing and Disability Commissioner Robert Fitzgerald.

Families, Communities and Disability Services Minister Alister Henskens said the NSW Government is working to create a more inclusive and accessible NSW that supports all people with disability to reach their full potential.

“Advocacy empowers people to overcome barriers that affect their ability to participate in our community,” Mr Henskens said.

“The Commissioner’s report provided a blueprint for a contemporary and sustainable advocacy system and now organisations have the opportunity to be a part of this exciting new chapter.”
