New report from NSW Ombudsman 
NSW Council on Intellectual Disability, 13th July 2015: 
People in disability accommodation die 30 years earlier than the community norm! Alongside this alarming statistic the report outlines numerous recommendations to remedy this, many of which NSW CID has been advocating for over the years. Action must now happen. 
The interplay between health and intellectual disability also demonstrates a key reason why systemic advocacy needs to be able to work across multiple systems not just the disability sector.
