The NSW Disability Network Forum (DNF) comprises non-government, non-provider peak representative, advocacy and information groups whose primary aim is to promote the interests of people with disability. Its aim is to build capacity within and across all organisations and groups so that the interests of people with disability are advanced through policy and systemic advocacy.
Communities in the Far West and Western NSW face significant challenges. Access to opportunities and services in these areas is often hampered by levels of investment that do not fully account for the impact of distance, sparse population density and levels of need. Too often, this translates to substandard services and people who are already financially disadvantaged facing out-of-pocket costs that they cannot realistically meet. By investing just $13 million per year communities in Western NSW and the Far West could be empowered to make positive change in their region.
Fair Deal for our Community Services is about building a stronger partnership between government and our sector in order to develop fair and reasonable reform and procurement processes.
