Season's greetings from DSC


22nd December 2017

Season’s greetings from DSC

As the holidays draw closer, the end of the year is a natural time for reflection.

2017 has been a time of significant change for DSC, just as it has been for many of you. The changes to the Disability Act 2006, which has enhanced DSC’s powers and functions, are especially positive given that the safety and wellbeing of Victorians with a disability matters to us all.

It goes without saying that many of the issues we address are serious in nature. But by empowering people to speak up, to have choice and control, and to feel safe and dignified, we have achieved better outcomes for many people with a disability.  No doubt, next year will be equally as busy!

I want to thank you for your support of our work this year. I wish you all happy holidays and a safe, enjoyable new year.
