2011/12 Budget graphic

7 Sep 2011

The 2011/12 Budget has allocated a total of $2.8 billion to ADHC, an increase of $341.6 million over the previous year.

This will fund the continued increase in existing services, such as therapy, respite, supported accommodation, case management, post school programs and the development of new programs to help support people with a disability, their families and carers. This also includes a range of community support services to frail older people, younger people with a disability and their carers. 

ADHC has more than 900 community partners who deliver services on its behalf. In 2011/12 they will receive grants and subsidies totalling $1.9 billion that will increase their capacity to support older people, people with a disability and their carers throughout NSW.
