Abstract

In the first decade of the 21st century, the provision of disability support in Australia was through an expensive, fragmented, broken system. Existing policies did not serve the needs of governments (federal, states and territories) or the public (people with disability, their families, carers and community). People with disability could not get the support they needed due to lack of information, complexity and rationed support. The funding was insufficient and inefficiently organised. The lack of support caused death and poor quality of life, and prevented people, their families and carers from active citizenship, including education and work. In response, a coalition of historically conflicting interests mobilised across governments, industry and the public. Their goal was to improve access to disability support by increasing funding and changing the way it was allocated, so that people would have control to choose support from a market. The goal was framed as a dual focus on economics and rights.
