Scott Morrison PM Visits Youngcare Wooloowin Share House

It was a busy day at the Wooloowin Share House with a very special guest popping in for morning tea. Prime Minister Scott Morrison came to meet the house mates and show his support for the positive change Youngcare is making within the community.

It was fantastic to hear the PM’s passion for the successful roll-out of the  National Disability Insurance Scheme – an initiative that will create more choice for young people with high care needs and their loved ones. It’s not every day the house mates get to meet the leader of the country and they welcomed him with open arms!

“I have talked a lot in the last couple of weeks in particular about Australia being the land of the fair go for those who have a go, and every time I talk about that, I often refer to the National Disability Insurance Scheme because that is what it is about,” Mr Morrison said.

“Here’s four wonderful Australians having a go, having a real go, and they’re getting a fair go here at Youngcare, they’re getting a fair go under the NDIS, and they’re making a big effort, they’re making choices about their lives just like any other Australian makes choices about their lives, and to see that realised here, frankly, it’s a bit overwhelming, it’s a bit overwhelming.” Mr Morrison said, his voice thick with emotion. 

“These are values my government, the government I’ve been part of since we were elected in 2013, we feel passionately about, and that’s why we are here today, to assure all Australians of my government’s ongoing commitment and support for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, to ensure it is fully funded as it will be under my government, and that also to recognise some of the other challenges that exist, which is ensuring that we can get investment and funds into supporting wonderful properties like this,”

“At the end of the day, to fund all of this, this is why I’m so passionate about ensuring that Australia has a strong economy. If you don’t have a strong economy, you can’t fund the NDIS.

We can make any number of promises you like, we can pass every law under the sun, but if you don’t have a strong economy, then you can’t support nation-changing projects like this, and that’s why a strong economy and the NDIS and the values of a fair go for those who have a go all sit together, and that marks our commitment here.”

Thank you Trevor Evans MP for the introduction and supporting us in our fight for freedom for young people with high care needs. Thanks for visiting Mr PM, we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds and continuing to work towards a future where every young person has the freedom to choose where they live, who they live with and how they live their lives.
