A former paralympic champion has urged the ACT government to help a local charity that creates assisted technology for Canberrans with a disability to keep operating.
The organisation, Technical Aid to the Disabled ACT (TADACT), in July this year lost its $150,000 a year annual funding from the ACT government.
It is one of many organisations in the ACT now struggling financially after losing Territory funding as disability services were moved to the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Michael Milton, an ambassador for TADACT, said the organisation was struggling to stay afloat due to a lag in the time it took for NDIS participants to be able to get needed equipment from prosthetics to adapted wheelchairs.
