To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth the need for the immediate introduction of an Attendant Care Allowance for Disabled people who need assistance with aspects of daily living.

This allowance will enable disabled people to live in the community.

It should be in the form of a benefit paid directly to the disabled person enabling him/her to employ and train the attendant of his/her own choice.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
