Your community deserves better

Email broadcast to members in the Gosford area

The NSW Liberal National Government has slashed 300 public sector jobs on the Central Coast in recent years and now the privatisation of Disability Services and Out Of Home Care is also eating away at your community.

This is a Government that just builds roads, not a society.

The Central Coast is out of sight and out of mind as far as this Government is concerned with the highest rate of vulnerable children in Out Of Home Care of all FACS districts in the state.

The Government’s ongoing privatisation agenda is setting up the Central Coast to fail spectacularly.

If the Government really wants to make a difference to the lives of people on the Central Coast, it should urgently rethink the catastrophic plan to privatise the Land Titles Registry, a move condemned by everyone from academics to property developers and pull back from the forced transfer of state disability services.

The Government trumpets its efforts on ‘life-changing projects’ but what could be more life changing for people on the Central Coast than to lose the security on their property?

What could be more life changing for families than to have the care of loved ones with disability thrown into free fall after the Government completely steps away from that space?

NSW will be the only state in Australia with no Government safety net for people with disability.

On the Central Coast alone, that will impact on 2,735 clients.

This is a Government that washes its hands of all social responsibility whether it’s starving the world class TAFE system of funds while throwing millions at dodgy private providers or pushing vulnerable kids into a non-Government Out of Home Care system and then reading the horror stories in the media.

Please keep these critical issues in mind when you vote.

PSA members are also supporting the Unions NSW “It’s About Jobs” campaign and will be at polling booths at Gosford TAFE and Wyoming Public School on Saturday.

Please come and say hello and show your support if you are in the area.
