Dear Mr Flanagan
From its very beginning the National Platform of Self- Advocates has sought to be an independent voice for people with disabilities and is unique in what it offers in this country. The Platform have researched, campaigned and offered their experience on many issues that they see as vital and important. They have worked voluntarily and tirelessly to create a more just and equal society – one that we will all benefit from. I cannot believe that when it is more vital than every before to ensure that people with a disability have a voice that this organisation is being silenced in through the lack of government support and funding. It is an absolutely shame.
I call on you to do all in your power to make sure that this does not happen.
