A message from Teamwork:
One of the issues that we know has caused major issues for people with disability and their teams is the lack of access to free Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs). While Minister Reynolds announced free RATs for people living and working in supported independent living, there are still around 460,000 people with disability in the NDIS who are in desperate need of tests, including people who need personal care in their own home.
That’s why we launched this petition
, calling on the Federal Minister for Health and the Federal Minister for the NDIS to give people with disability on the NDIS access to free RATs.
While we haven't yet had to rely on RATs to keep our loved ones safe here in WA, it's important that we're prepared when the time comes. Will you sign the petition for free RATs for people with disability and their teams? https://teamwork.org.au/freetests/
