OK - NOTE TO SELF: When I find something I want to blog about and I start the blog, I have to remember to press 'publish' when I finish the blog or it stays in 'drafts'.
I meant to publish this blog yesterday. Old dog; new tricks; how does that go?
On a more serious note, and linking to my earlier blog about NDIA Plans not being a fit for some people, the other day I came across this in an email:
Help shape the national disability strategy beyond 2020 Australian governments are asking people to help shape the future of Australian disability policy for 2020 and beyond. Ten years ago the launch of the first National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 paved the way for how governments could help improve the lives of people with disability.
The strategy will end in 2020 and all Australian governments are working together to develop a new strategy for beyond 2020 and we encourage people with disability, their families and carers to have their say on the priorities and actions of the next strategy.
Consultation is still open by public survey and online forums. Visit the consultation website for details.
Now if you're like me, I leave it to others to speak on my behalf when I am presented with the option of completing a survey - yuck! This time around, I decided I would do my bit. There are too many individuals and families that have had experiences that should not be a part of NDIS into the future. I have as much tolerance to all the newness of the system as the next person, but presented with an opportunity to speak up about what could be better - I will take it!
I clicked on the link in the email (above). It took me to the page. I hovered over the green 'OPEN' button and my cursor did not change into a hand. I hovered a little more dramatically. Nothing. I clicked. Nothing. I clicked multiple times in rapid succession. Nothing.
Maybe it's a trick?
