Plans for disability centres delayed in NSW
Imagine all the inconvenience of moving house without actually having a new house to move into. That’s the reality for hundreds of disabled people facing the closure of residential centres, with the construction of new homes being delayed by the New South Wales government. People with disabilities living in large residential centres in Newcastle, Morisset, and Port Stephens have been promised new, smaller group homes. However, these three large centres were due to close by the middle of the year, and the construction of the new homes has been delayed. Joining us was lead news reporter for the ABC in Newcastle, Liz Farquhar.
