Australia: More spending to support disabled people

Posted 06/3-11 at 16.33

A commission has called for an additional $7bn to be spent on services to ensure disabled people receive high-quality care and support. Its draft report proposes two new insurance funds to ease the burden on disabled people and their families.

The commission said radical changes were needed to an "underfunded, unfair, fragmented and inefficient" system, and proposed a federal government takeover of the sector.

The proposals have received bipartisan support.
