Activ closures: Anthony Albanese to investigate lifeline for disability services provider

Anthony Albanese says he will do what he can to see how a disability employment service in WA can keep operating, after the provider announced it was shutting down its industrial workshops leaving hundreds out of work.

The Opposition Leader called the closure of Activ’s supported employment workshops “a really serious issue” that had left those involved “devastated”.

“This is a serious issue that goes to the cuts that have occurred to the NDIS and goes to, as well, what has occurred in employment services,” he said.

“This decision has been devastating for the people involved in those employment services, but also their families.

“This is a company that have been active in Western Australia for 70 years. They’ve survived all sorts of pressures, but they couldn’t survive the Morrison government.”
