On 30 June 2018, the funding agreement between Disability and Aged Information Service Inc (DAISI) and Family and Community Services (FACS) for the Working Carers Gateway will reach its completion date.
FACS will commence funding projects through a new Carers Investment Program valued at $5.6m over three years. The Program will complement the focus areas in the existing NSW Carers Strategy 2014-2019 and encourage innovation and collaboration. FACS used a competitive tender process to seek and select projects proposed by organisations across NSW.
Don't Ditch Disability Advocacy
Just asking for some support - we are running an online petition to ask the state government to continue funding advocacy and information services for people with a disability across NSW.
DAISI Services Limited, who provide the Working Carers Gateway, is one of those services. The NSW government decision to stop funding our information service will mean that after June 30 2018 we will not be able to provide community information, connection and referral support for people with a disability in our community.
At a time when our most vulnerable members of the community are experiencing one of the greatest changes to their support in decades we need to be able to stand by them supporting them through this change.
Please sign the petition and ask your MP to fix the problem
