"There is no doubt that we are currently in the middle of the greatest transformation for disability rights in Australia. And, if all goes as planned, there will never be another time like this because there should not be the need for it. And the reasons for this go far beyond today’s conference and its theme of turning plans into outcomes." - A quote from, National Disability Services NSW State Conference ‘Turning Plans into Outcomes’
"Many of those people currently in detention will be found to be refugees and will come to live with us in our communities. They, like the many thousands of refugees before them who Australia has welcomed, will make significant contributions to life in Australia."
