Inquiry into delivery of outcomes under the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 to build inclusive and accessible communities
BCCM’s submission considers the obstacles making it more difficult for co-operatives and mutuals to operate on a level playing field with other organisation forms, and the barriers these create in the delivery of outcomes under the National Disability Strategy.
The submission highlights the role of co-operative and mutuals in promoting increased user choice and greater economic participation and meaningful work opportunities for people with disability.
BCCM urges priority for systemically addressing and removing barriers that place restrictions on the formation and operation of co-operatives and mutuals.
