Migrants missing out on disability support

There are concerns vulnerable people born overseas and living with a disability in Australia are missing out on support services.

The organisation People with Disability Australia says the national scheme set up to service the disabled community needs to be more accessible and inclusive.

It's hoped a multilingual hub offering non-English speakers who have a disability crucial information about available support, will start to fill the gap.

Australian data shows people born overseas have the same rate of disability as those born locally.

Yet many people who are eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme are missing out.
