Written Material

There is great disillusionment with the "rights" spelt out in the NSW Government's Statement of Principles for People with Disabilities and their Families, and little people can do to enforce these rights. Consultation with consumer groups indicates that consumer enforceability should be an essential part of proposed legislation. This paper was prepared in order to inform the community of the proposed NSW Disability Services Act and why consumer enforceability is very important. It discusses consumer remedies which are needed and what is happening in NSW at the moment where the current system of governmental rights protection bodies is inadequate. Keyword: Government
