Guest post by Sally Robinson

"Protecting children is everyone's business" - It is especially worth thinking about how much really goes into making the protection of children and young people with intellectual disability everyone's business.

NSW CID wants to say something and wants to say it loud and clear.

We have a guest blogger this week as part of Speech Pathology Week.
Speech Pathologist Laura Blasdale has kindly agreed to tell NSW CID more about the world of speech pathology. Thanks Laura…..

We lost an outstanding advocate for people with disability with the death of Jane Fraser in May. Jane was one of the leaders amongst the parent advocates who became very vocal in the 1980s in pursuing a good life in the community for all people with disability.

For some time, NSW CID and other intellectual disability groups have been advocating to the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) about the lack of direct input to the NDIA by people with intellectual disability and their advocates. This is very important since people with intellectual disability are over 60% of participants in the NDIS.

NSW CID held our annual conference - “We are worth the investment - people with intellectual disability & the NDIS” over 2 days in July.

NSW CID has released it's Position Statement on the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework.

This position is based on:

Have your Say!

There is an inquiry being held by the Senate into the operation of the private Vocational Education and Training (VET) system.

Governments are consulting on a proposed quality and safeguarding framework for the NDIS. Submissions close on 30 April. Click here to find out more.

This month, NSW CID Member Barbara Spode speaks out about the privatisation of NSW Government Disability Services and what she feels will be the result for her daughter India.

NSW CID is alarmed by the lack of action on the mental health of people with intellectual disability in the NSW Government's response to its Mental Health Commission's Strategic Plan.

For 60 years, there have been peak groups specifically representing people with intellectual disability both in NSW and in Canberra.

So the New Year has begun and as the tinsel from last year has been packed away in the office it has been replaced with fresh calendars work plans, meetings and much enthusiasm for the year ahead.

As 2014 comes to an end NSW CID wanted to give you an update on our news.
NSW CID has kept having a strong voice about issues that are important to people with intellectual disability.

There is considerable community concern about the NSW Government's decision to close ADHC as the NDIS is rolled out in NSW.

It is now only ten days until the NSW CID Conference – Challenge Change Create.
