Endeavour Foundation CEO David Barbagallo has welcomed today’s Queensland Government budget announcement in response to two pressing issues within the disability sector.
"Elderly carers face a particularly difficult situation. They’ve often invested their lives in supporting a son or daughter with a disability, and in their old age are deeply concerned about the ongoing support of their family member with a disability," Mr Barbagallo said.
"It is pleasing that the Queensland Government is listening to the concerns of elderly parents and carers and seeking solutions through the $15 million Elderly Parent Carer Innovation Trial," he said.
"We also welcome the announcement of $6.5 million ($26 million over four years) in additional respite for 16-25 year-old people with complex support requirements.
"Respite is a vitally important service for families and carers, who often struggle to provide support in physically, emotionally and financially challenging circumstances.
"The government must also be congratulated on $18.6 million in commitments to build and upgrade existing accommodation for people with challenging and complex support requirements," Mr Barbagallo said.
Established in 1951, Endeavour Foundation provides accommodation, education, training, vocational, employment and lifestyle opportunities for more than 3,350 people with a disability at 230 locations, in Queensland and New South Wales.
