2011 Pre Budget Campaign
Issued on December 1 2010
Budget 2010 introduced a number of funding cuts that have put disabled people at greater risk of poverty, have threatened their access to services and undermined the implementation of the National Disability Strategy (NDS).
DFI, our members and most importantly, people with disabilities believe that further cuts to services and income support will cause unacceptable hardship for disabled people. We have an expectation that the concerns outlined in the DFI Pre-Budget Submission will be addressed in Budget 2011 with the knowledge that the Government has committed to protecting the NDS during the recession
