Disability Advocacy Alliance Petition Handover

I recognise and thank the hundreds of people with disabilities, their supporters and their advocates, who attended Parliament House today to have their voices heard.

I pay particular respect to Serena Ovens, Matthew Bowden, Cecile Elder, Mark Grierson, Jim Simpson and Diana Palmer for their constant hard work and effort on behalf of the Disability Advocacy Alliance, which was formed to support people with disabilities and to organise funding going forward for disability advocacy services in New South Wales.

I particularly acknowledge my colleagues the member for Canterbury, Sophie Cotsis, and the member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, for standing by the Disability Advocacy Alliance from its beginning.

I pay special tribute to the Leader of the Opposition, Luke Foley, for committing Labor today to funding disability advocacy services in New South Wales in perpetuity. Recognition of disability advocacy was a battle that was partly won today, but there is so much more to do.
