Equality and Compassion

Caring. Compassionate. Supportive.

We believe in a society that provides the right support, so that everyone can participate fully. The Greens are committed to a fully funded National Disability Insurance Scheme. We will also increase support for people with disability by reversing harsh Coalition cuts to the Disability Support Pension.

Everyone has the right to independence, self-determination and choice. Our vision is for a society that embraces diversity, and provides appropriate support so that everyone can participate fully. That's why the Greens are committing to:

  • Fully fund the National Disability Insurance Scheme. The NDIS will provide important support for people with disability. That's why we want a fully-funded rollout, so the NDIS can be the best it can be.
  • Reverse Coalition cuts to the Disability Support Pension. The Coalition has cut income support for people with disability. We will reverse those cuts to give people with disability the support they need.
  • Provide audio description on the ABC iView, to ensure ABC material is available to a wider audience.
