It’s time to make the NDIS Real in 2012
Monday, April 30 will see the biggest rally of people with disabilities Australia has ever seen join forces to ensure the National Disability Insurance Scheme becomes a reality.
From the Every Australian Counts website here is just two reasons why an NDIS is so important…
Rally events will be held in six capital cities around Australia and will be a fantastic way to re-emphasise the message to the Government and the general public.
Mac is having the day off school to attend the rally. It is important for him to be involved, to understand and to be a part of something that could be ‘life changing’ for him.
Mac, Shawn and I will be accompanied at the rally by my mum, my sister and our 15 yo nephew (also taking a day off school to support his cousin) – a couple of other willing family members have had to stay back at home and help out with other commitments (the NSW rally is 3hrs away so it’s a big day). We do appreciate the support we get from our family and friends, their willingness to learn from us, to take the time to truly try to understand the real issues and, more importantly, their preparedness to change their own mindsets means so much.
Mac will have wheels decorated and we will be taking some banners with us. I have added banners for others to use/share on the Inky Ed! facebook page.
