In preparing our Pre-Budget Submission 2024, we consulted widely with more than 460 of our Service Users across the country. We also carried out a survey with a small cohort of frontline staff, including Care Workers, Instructors, Psychologists, Rehabilitation Officers, Supervisors and Managers.
Rehab Group believes that people with disabilities should live self-determined, independent lives. Budget 2024 must create a platform to deliver a more equal and just society and develop pathways to full community participation for people with disabilities. Our pre-budget submission is wide-ranging and cross-cutting and we emphasise the need for a whole of Government approach to Disability.
We have 10 headline asks for Budget 2024 to address the critical issues for our service users and the wider challenges facing disability services.
