UNIONS MEET WITH FAMILIES OVER DISABILITY PRIVATISATION

Families impacted by the privatisation of disability services are meeting in Newcastle tonight.

A public forum is being hosted by unions, to allow residents in the Hunter to voice concerns.

“So we’re hearing from our members and from the community that there is massive shortfalls in funding and emerging risks and gaps in service provision,” say Kylie McKelvie from the Public Service Association.

The Public Service Association says all disability services in Newcastle will be privatised from December 1.
