A million reasons to smile

A COFFS Coast group that fights for the rights of disabled people has been granted a share of more than $1 million in funding.

Disability Advocacy NSW, which operates in the Nambucca Shire, is set to receive a share in the $1.37 million of Federal funds to deliver additional advocacy support to people with a disability.

Minister for Community Services Jenny Macklin said there are many barriers to people with disability participating fully in society. “The National Disability Advocacy Program enables people with disabilities to participate actively in the community by promoting independence,,” Ms Macklin said.

Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities, Bill Shorten, said the government is taking action to ensure that advocacy remains an effective safeguard for people with disability.
