NSW Election 23

Scroll to sign the petition

Our school and work systems aren’t designed to give young people with disabilities the same opportunities as everyone else.

And we, a group of young people with cerebral palsy, have come together to change this.

We’re blazing the trail for a better pathway, and a better future, for other young people with disabilities.

But we need your help.

Every single person who signs this petition gets us one inch closer to making the school and work systems in NSW more accessible for people with disabilities.

And when our education and employment systems are accessible – everyone benefits.

Will you add your name to our petition?

In the March 2023 NSW state election, we’re calling for all candidates and representatives to commit to an Inclusive School to Work Pathways Strategy for NSW.

We want this strategy to:

  • Be designed by students with disability in partnership with educators, employers, and the community.
  • Be consistent with Human Rights Obligations under the UNCRPD
  • Include measurable targets that would be reported on annually

To make the pathways from school to work better for young people with cerebral palsy, we want the strategy to include 3 key things:

  1. Clear, consistent, and enforceable guidelines for support around assessments at school and university for students living with disability
  2. Pathways for people living with disability to enter the teaching workforce
  3. A state-wide initiative supporting the development of pathways for students living with disability into large business, government departments and community organisations

You can help us get closer to making our pathways from school to work more inclusive. And when our education and employment systems are accessible – everyone benefits.
