Disability

People who experience disability, and their families and carers deserve access to life-long support and services that meet their individual circumstances.

They should have the opportunity to actively participate in planning and delivery of policies, services and supports in areas such as education, health, housing, mobility, employment and social engagement.

The Greens are actively working to ensure all Australians have independence, self-determination and choice in their lives.

In WA it is clear that any roll out of the NDIS is going to require more involvement in the governance and design by people receiving the service. Alison and the Greens support services that are co-designed with consumers. It is vitally important that there is an on-going commitment by Government to a full partnership approach to the delivery of the NDIS.

Alison will continue to call for greater transparency and greater inclusion of the voices of people lived experience and the sector to ensure that the NDIS will meet the needs of people with a disability in WA. She will continue to work closely with people with disability, their families, and representative organisations to ensure that the principles of genuine engagement, co-design, transparency and no disadvantage are upheld.
