  Without access to Disability Advocacy Services- the 1.3 million people in NSW living with disabilities will have no one to assist them in navigating through our health system. Tell the NSW Government that you care about equal opportunities for people with disabilities. #JustDoItGladys #StandByMe #AdvocacyMatters
