Call For Legal Aid for Australians With Disability

ABC News

Broadcast by Nick Grimm

In recent years legal aid services around the country have warned that too little government funding has left them struggling to ensure everyone can equal access to justice, regardless of income.

But this year the peak body National Legal Aid is calling on the federal government to stump up a relatively-modest six million dollars to fund a new legal service specifically for disabled Australians.

They want to build on the success of a short-term legal support service set up alongside the Disability Royal Commission, which is about to be shut down.
