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.

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
