Resident Rights consultation period extended

21 Feb 2018

The NSW Government has extended the consultation period for improving resident protections for people with disability living in supported group accommodation. You can now have your say by Sunday 11 March 2018.

To participate, read one or more of the consultation papers and then send us your feedback by:

  • answering an online survey (approximately 15-20 minutes)
  • emailing a response
  • writing a letter to the Department of Family and Community Services.

The consultation is open to anyone but we especially want to hear from:

  • people with disability in NSW who are living in supported group accommodation and their families and guardians
  • peak body and advocacy groups
  • people and organisations of the disability and housing sector.

The public consultation period runs until Sunday 11 March 2018.

The NSW Government will release a final report in June 2018.
