The Child Protection Party is committed to social inclusion and access to the benefits of our first world country for all Australians. We suggest that the 18% of South Australians living with a disability should have:
- Opportunity to participate in the formulation of policies for disability services and funding, coupled with choice and flexibility in service providers.
- Access to regular and reliable transport services with ‘accessible to all’ buses and trains, and audio devices for vision-impaired passengers.
- Appropriate mobility aids that are ‘fit for purpose’ such as modified wheelchairs for poorly constructed surfaces and rough dirt tracks in remote areas.
- Equivalent opportunity in employment, education and training with a focus on potential and ability rather than disability.
- Opportunity to complete exams and assessments with appropriate well-researched adjustments to optimise outcomes.
- Protection against discrimination and exploitation and access to legal representation as needed.
- Acknowledgement of their valuable contribution to society, and public awareness programs to encourage a better understanding of the diverse range of visible and non-visible disabilities.
