Enabling disability groups in the Clarence and Richmond Valleys

Clarence and Richmond Valley disability advocacy services will be able to access a share of $26 million to help their clients, according to Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis. “The Transitional Advocacy Funding Supplement is about helping local people with a disability to access better services, even before the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is fully in place in 2020,” Mr Gulaptis said. “The local focus of this initiative means a better deal for everyone including the taxpayer. “The NSW Liberals and Nationals Government is particularly interested in funding activities that support inclusion of people with disability in their communities.” More than 84,000 people with disability in NSW are currently accessing the NDIS in NSW.
