The parents of Oliver McGowan are now calling for fundamental changes to the way the deaths of people with learning #disabilities and #autism are examined by the NHS. https://t.co/Ic3mdcZbow https://t.co/G22Cd7QjIz

We welcome this news from Attorney-General, @cporterwa to amend the Royal Commissions Act 1902 to protect the confidentiality of #DisabilityRC witnesses' beyond the life of the inquiry, but it needs to be introduced urgently, not in Autumn 2021. @DRC_AU https://t.co/QI2eH3PmHV

Congratulations to Sir Robert Martin. Sir Robert has been advocating for people with #disability in NZ and around the world for over 30 years. He represents NZ as an independent expert at the UN - the first person with an intellectual #disability to do so. https://t.co/0Dhw0t1AxY

Demand for food relief nearly doubled since COVID-19, and the Govt's brutal income support cuts will make it worse. No one should have to go hungry, sleep rough or live in poverty in Australia We must #RaiseTheRateforGood. #APW2020 #EverybodysHome @FoodbankAus https://t.co/ZqTx6vxIfE

Unless Government permanently increases #JobSeeker payments, many ppl w #disability face life on $40 a day when the #CoronaVirus supplement ends. JobSeeker includes a lot of #PWD who don't meet the tight requirements of the #DisabilityPension! #RaiseTheRateforGood https://t.co/t56vz0EuJl

The Federal Budget offered little for ppl with #disability, as this article reveals and this comes as the number of people with #disabilities on #JobSeeker payment rose from 25% in 2014, to 41% (or 325,000 people) in March 2020. #Budget2020 #employment https://t.co/CGB1yypHE4

"Get over it" This is what one #girl with intellectual #disability was told by her teacher after being sexually assaulted & raped at a #NSW #school. We are in disbelief that any teacher would say this! #DisabilityRC #abuse #women @WDVtweet @WWDACT https://t.co/V6Vew2IW4t

Heartbreaking stories this week at @DisabilityRC Jack was diagnosed with #Tourette Syndrome. His parents repeatedly asked the school to apply for funding to support Jack, but it was refused. "They dismissed it and said #Tourette's wasn't a #disability" https://t.co/L9tYVDDBpm

Another story promoting ADEs (sheltered workshops) where employees with #disability only get paid a few $$ an hour. #Media - This is not "empowering Aussies", this is #exploitation of Australians with #disabilities. https://t.co/9uQ3cfEBZX

Evidence at this this week's Disability Royal Commission Hearing into the barriers to #InclusiveEducation has found that #Students with #disability in Australia are experiencing systemic failures and #HumanRights breaches. https://t.co/ieP5sNbAeR

Quoted @AfdoOffice

This looks like a feel good story, but it doesn't mention that the company is an Australian Disability Enterprise (sheltered workshop) which pays employees with #disability only a few $$ an hour. More transparency is needed in these stories by #media. https://t.co/ZaM8Am3bkh

If you don’t pay your workers properly, it’s exploitation. If you don’t pay your workers with disabilities properly it’s exploitation of people with disabilities. https://t.co/CXzsdMMikt
