Melba calls for more accommodation options in its Senate inquiry submission
Tuesday 03/03/15

Monday 2 March 2015
Melba Support Services has called for more accommodation options in its submission to a Senate inquiry into the adequacy of existing residential care arrangements available for young people with severe physical, mental or intellectual disabilities in Australia.
Melba’s submission argues Government policy should assist individuals with disability exercise choice. Other members of the community are able to choose where they live and with whom they live. This is a fundamental right that should be afforded people with disability.
The submission also discusses Melba’s own initiatives that aim to provide more housing options, including an exciting housing development being undertaken in conjunction with the Lilydale Uniting Church.
Melba Board member, Colin Rose, and CEO, Glenn Foard, will present further evidence when they attend an inquiry hearing on 11 March 2015.
