Our March Forum is very timely, following on the release on 25 February of the final report of Patrick McClure's review into Australia's welfare system. The report has received a cautious, sometimes sceptical reception from the disability community (here, here and here).
With this forum, we hope to ensure that the debate has only begun and that equality continues to be the watchword for all future policy makers.
