YACVic and the Youth Disability Advocacy Service (YDAS) submitted this joint paper to the Minister for Social Services, in response to the Final Report into the Review of Australia’s Welfare System (the ‘McClure Report’). YDAS and YACVic welcome several of McClure’s recommendations, notably the proposal for a comprehensive Jobs Plan for people with disabilities and the idea of a ‘passport to work’. However, other aspects of the report, such as raising the ‘age of independence’ to 22, are concerning to the young people and services we work with.
