Victorians living with disability deserve the same opportunities as every other Victorian.
In this year’s Budget, we’re ensuring that Victorians living with disability get the support they deserve.
The Victorian Budget 2018/19 includes investments to:
$288 million to help make sure students living with disability and learning difficulties get the support they need.
$9.2 million for continued delivery of the State Disability Plan 2017-20 to boost access, inclusion and participation. This funding also includes a feasibility study to make Geelong a more accessible city, extending the reach of disability advocacy organisations, and expanding the Changing Places program to create 11 new, fully accessible public toilet and changing facilities.
$4.5 million to deliver the National Disability Insurance Scheme, giving people with disability more choice and control.
