Limited focus on Disability in the 2019/20 Victorian State Budget

A document being read at a desk


Unsurprisingly there was a limited focus on Disability in the Victorian State Budget.

However, there are valuable and worthwhile measures in the additional support for carers, the funds to provide greater security for children in out-of-home care as well as the additional funds to make schools both more accessible and inclusive.

NDS welcomes a number of targeted assistance measures which are detailed below. 

Budget Highlights:

We expect that a number of these measures will need to be funded for many years, but given the worker registration scheme is not scheduled to formally commence until 1 July 2020, it is not surprising that funding has only been allocated for next year.
