Greens Call for Better Support for Students with Disabilities

Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens' Education spokesperson

In Greens’ Private Members Time this week, we’ll move to affirm the rights of all Tasmanian students to a quality education, and the responsibility of the State Government to provide it.

The Tasmanian Disability Education Reform Lobby's 2017 School Experience Snapshot, a survey of parents of students with disabilities, findings are confronting.   The State education system is clearly failing too many students with a disability.

Full NDIS Scheme Will Change Lives

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader and Human Services spokesperson

Thousands of Tasmanians living with a disability will be able to access the supports they need to live more independently, access training and employment and achieve their goals with the NDIS full scheme rolling out today across the State.

Once it is fully rolled out to all age groups in Tasmania over the next three years, around 10 600 Tasmanians living with disability will be accessing supports and affordable housing through the NDIS.
