It’s been a difficult year for everyone this year, and like so many businesses, DPS, the company behind Talking Disability, had to adapt to the new developments from COVID-19. A lot of this year's hard work has been done from the homes of DPS staff!
While it was a challenging year, Talking Disability was able to report on the most important and relevant news for our readers, and showcase the strength and resolve of Australian communities, while providing the information and resources that people with disability and their families needed to safely get through the year.
Even though COVID-19 brought the world to a stop, many areas in disability kept moving. Talking Disability reported on the latest with the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability, as well as the latest NDIS updates and safeguards announced by Federal and State Governments.
2020 was definitely a unique year with many struggles but Australia weathered it better than most. We can now look ahead to a fresh start in 2021 as the country recovers from COVID-19.
Talking Disability and DPS look forward to continuing to inform and report on the many new surprises that will no doubt come in the new year.
The first newsletter of 2021 will be distributed to subscribers on Tuesday 19 January. To ensure you receive the fortnightly disability news in your inbox in 2021, subscribe here.
From all the staff at DPS and Talking Disability, we wish our readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
