    Disability Care

    Policy Statement: People from diverse cultural backgrounds who also have a disability face multiple disadvantages throughout their life cycle.

    Policy Platform:

    • Provide funding to address the existing funding shortfall in this program. These funds would be sourced from a review of federal and state government spending, in the duplication of services and functions.
    • People with disability, their families and advocates, must be provided with choice for services which meet their cultural needs.
    • Specific program for CALD people with a disability, from regional and rural regions.
    • Review of sheltered workshop programs to ensure culturally appropriate policies and personnel to accommodate CALD people with a disability.
