Last year, the Australian Government made the disappointing decision to cut its central disability allocation within the Australian Aid budget by 25%.
This is at a time when COVID-19 is catastrophically impacting the lives of people with disabilities. Now more than ever we need to invest in disability inclusion throughout the aid program.
In the lead up to the May Federal Budget, we are calling on our government to:
✔️ Invest in people with disabilities in developing countries
✔️ Restore funding for disability inclusion in Australia’s aid program
✔️ Increase DFAT’s central disability allocation to $14m per year
✔️ Ensure a sufficient internal budget for staff and support costs

We need as many signatures as possible to show our Government that this issue matters.
Thank you for your partnering with us to achieve a #BetterWorldForAll.
