IDA members meet with Minister Gareth Ward

A wide variety of topics were covered when Gareth Ward, Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services, met with members of the Illawarra Disability Alliance on Friday 30 August 2019.

The discussions included the pressure points where NDIS meets NSW Government services through to the importance of advocacy and the need for more activity from local councils in supporting people with disability to access social and community supports.

We are pleased to note that the campaign to address insufficient indexation continues, and an accessible Unanderra Train Station is high on the Minister’s priority list.

Great collegiality was displayed, as always, from the IDA members.
