We’re Mad as Hell that Australia has a Third World disability support system.
Millions of us are affected. It's time to make our votes count. It's time to take the Pledge.
- 1.4 million people with serious disability - the population of Adelaide and Hobart combined.
- By 2030: 2.9 million people with serious disability.
- 700,000+ full-time carers of a person with a disability now; fewer carers as population ages.
- 10% less unpaid care = 40% increase in funded services.
Who deserves our vote?
Most political parties say they support major reform of the disability system. Neither of the two major political parties commits to a national disability insurance scheme. Follow the links to read and decide for yourself … and make your vote count!

Carers Alliance: “will put before Parliament a private members bill to set up the NDIS”
