|Program of Appliances for Disabled People (PADP)|
11 June 2009
The PADP Community Alliance warmly welcomes the Final Report of the NSW Legislative Council’s Inquiry into the Program of Appliances for Disabled People (PADP).
Following the release of the Final Report, the PADP Community Alliance (the Alliance) was formed in order to provide a forum for organisations with an interest in the program to discuss the inquiry’s recommendations, and to consider undertaking coordinated activity related to the implementation of these recommendations.
The Alliance believes that the Final Report provides an accurate assessment of PADP, and reflects the experience and evidence provided by Alliance members to the Inquiry.
The Alliance has developed a Position Statement on the Final Report which represents the consensus opinion of a range of community organisations and individuals with an interest in PADP. It outlines the agreed position of the members of the Alliance on recommendations made in the Final Report of the NSW Legislative Council Inquiry into the Program of Appliances for Disabled People (PADP), and provides the platform for coordinated advocacy by the Alliance in order to secure the implementation of these recommendations.
The Position Statement is endorsed by:
