E-Blast: QDN 2019 Federal Election Advocacy Kit
QDN is pleased to release to our members and supporters our QDN 2019 Federal Election Advocacy Kit. The advocacy kit summarises QDN’s position in seven key priority areas for the Federal election on the 18 May 2018 to assist you in any conversations that you may have with candidates about the important issues for Queenslanders with disability. These seven priority areas include:
Priority 1 – The National Disability Insurance Scheme
Priority 2 – Royal Commission into violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect of people with disability (the Royal Commission)
Priority 3 – Housing
Priority 4 – Transport
Priority 5 – Health
Priority 6 – Employment
Priority 7 – National Disability Agreement and National Disability Strategy
These have been developed from direct feedback from QDN’s 2000 strong members and supporters as well as our direct project work with people with disability. The Advocacy Kit also contains useful strategies to lobby candidates who are all eager for your vote. It is vital that we strive to get a better deal for people with disability across a number of key portfolio areas of government.
QDN would like to take this opportunity to thank our members and supporters for informing our key messages and encourages everyone in the coming weeks to get involved, and share QDN’s key messages with candidates in your electorate and the wider community. If anyone would like further information, please call QDN on: 1300 363 783.
