This information will be provided according to the resolution of the Assembly. It may then be useful for some further subsequent briefings to be held. Clearly, further information will become available as to the extent of the damage caused on the site by the flood event earlier this month. I am sure we will have the opportunity to discuss this matter in this place further. But for now I think we may have reached a reasonable outcome that everyone can agree with and move forward on.

MR RATTENBURY (Molonglo) (3.05): I believe this text accurately reflects what was intended to be achieved, and the Greens will be more than happy to support this.

Disability services—post-school options

MS HUNTER (Ginninderra—Parliamentary Leader, ACT Greens) (3.06): I move:

That this Assembly:

(1) notes:

(a) that more than 40 young people with a disability will be leaving school at the end of this year;

(b) that planning for post school options support for young people with a disability, and their families and carers, has more positive outcomes if begun early;

(c) that for many young people with a disability, and their families and carers, navigating the complex system of post school support programs and funding options can be difficult and stressful;

(d) that the Government has recently opened the Disability Information and Support Hub, which is a co-location of existing government and non-government services;

(e) that many of the support services currently available in the ACT have significant waiting lists, and capped places;

(f) that young people with a disability, and their families and carers, may be eligible for funding assistance through Individual Support Packages provided by the Government through Disability ACT;
