We want the Government to introduce meaningful reforms to make it financially viable for a person with a disability to take up employment

In This Section

We are calling on the Government to decouple the disability allowance from unemployment assistance and benefits. In an environment where we are reaching full employment there is a real opportunity for the Government to enable people with disabilities, including those with Down syndrome, to contribute to the economy and access employment without the fear of losing their benefits. We are asking for three-year protection of the benefit.
