We are pleased to launch the Emerge Australia petition as part of our Awareness Day 2018 advocacy initiatives.
“…draws to the attention of the House the many Australians with ME/CFS whose applications for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) are being unfairly rejected.We ask the Australian Government to work with Emerge Australia to address this injustice.We request for action by the House to:
- Partner with the ME/CFS community to develop appropriate guidelines for NDIS assessors.
- Add ME/CFS to List B of permanent conditions where further assessment is required.”
We’re asking our members and supporters to please PRINT A HARD COPY OF THE PETITION, gather as many signatures as you can and return it to the Emerge Australia office at PO Box 120, Prahran, VIC 3181 by the end of October 2018.
