The State Liberal Government recently announced their intention to privatise disability services in supported community accommodation services and group homes.
They did not consult with workers, their representatives, clients, or their families before announcing this change.
If you are a South Australian living with a disability in supported community accommodation services or a group home, a family member, or a United Voice member working in Government Disability Services, you are invited to the meeting below.
Meeting of family, workers, clients and friends of DCSI
Date: Tuesday, 23 October 2018

All affected clients, family members, workers and supporters are strongly encouraged to attend.
