Disability Advocates Welcome New Social Services Ministers

Disability advocates have welcomed the appointments of Paul Fletcher and Sarah Henderson as social services ministers, after outgoing minister Dan Tehan was moved to education amid a cabinet reshuffle.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison unveiled his new-look cabinet on Sunday, announcing Paul Fletcher as the minister for families and social services and Sarah Henderson as assistant minister for social services, housing and disability services.

“Paul Fletcher MP will serve as the new minister for families and social services. Mr Fletcher is enormously qualified to take on this cabinet position to ensure Australians have continued access to an affordable and sustainable safety net,” Morrison said.

“Sarah Henderson MP will be appointed as assistant minister for social services, housing and disability services.”
