‘A punch in the gut’: Carers, people with disabilities share Centrelink experiences

Carers and people with disabilities have shared their experiences working with Centrelink to receive their support payments after a Geraldton mother spoke out about having to continuously provide proof her son “still had” Down Syndrome.

Parents and carers of people with Down Syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, motor neuron disease and even those who had lost limbs wrote to WAtoday to express their concern, and to support Michelle Cassin in her calls for a national permanent disability register.
