Vision 2020 Australia response New Disability Employment Services from 2018

Vision 2020 Australia response to the Department of Social Services on the New Disability Employment Services (DES) from 2018 asserts a number of recommendations on how DES can be reformed to ensure that participants who are blind or vision impaired, and people with disability more broadly, can have genuine choice and control over the services they need to gain meaningful employment, in line with their skills and career objectives. Namely, Vision 2020 Australia asserts that the Australian Government should implement a model of participant controlled funding to allow participants to self-manage and direct their funds to a wide range of supports.
