The Maroondah Disability Action Group was formed to provide a community based advocacy group for people with disabilities. This morning the group was addressed by Senator Mitch Fifield, the Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities, Carers and the Voluntary Sector.

The Senator discussed the Coalition’s policies for people with disabilities and carers, including the need for streamlining the provision of services between all levels of government and an emphasis on individual based care packages.

The Maroondah Disability Action Group meets on a monthly basis and includes a range of guest speakers to advocate on behalf of its members and people with disabilities.
