Minister Williams visits Lismore

Minister for Disability Services Ray Williams visited with Ability Links during his visit to Lismore.

Mr Williams said he was working diligently on showing how effective the program was and would do his best to continue the program past its funding end date of mid-2018.

"Every week we hear of another person with a disability who has become isolated, has connected with one of our linkers, which has enlightened them and brought them into a more inclusive society,” he said.

According to independent reports by Urbis, the program returns three dollars in economic and social benefits for every dollar invested by the government.
