Constituency questions 

Georgie Crozier (LIB) 

 

CROZIER (Southern Metropolitan): My constituency question is to the Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers, Luke Donnellan, and it is in relation to Marriot Support Services, which is a fantastic organisation in my area of Southern Metropolitan Region.

It, along with a number of other employers that look after people with severe needs36 employers actuallyhas been in discussion with the government and the unions and various others to try and get a new agreement that will assist them as their services transition into the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Unfortunately there has been a significant issue in relation to how these fit-for-purpose employment arrangements are going to actually be provided, and throughout these discussions it is my understanding that there was a multi-employer agreement put in place. However, for that to be delivered and to be ongoing so that these organisations can provide this necessary support to so many vulnerable Victorians, they need money.

They need $45.6 million to allow that transition to happen. I ask the minister: could he provide that urgent funding for all of these organisations in Victoria so they can transition into the NDIS?
