Dad takes up fight
PETER Stacy is a dad who just wants to know his son is taken care of when he is no longer around.
A member of the Warwick and District Disability Support Group, Mr Stacy yesterday presented Southern Downs councillors with a report into local disability services.
The group has been working tirelessly to improve services across the region, with the ultimate goal of creating a learning and lifestyle centre in Warwick.
Mr Stacy said the aim of the service was to allow people with disabilities to transition from their parents' care to self-sufficiency.
"All I want to do is to care for my child until he is no longer required to be under my care; like any other parent," he said.
"It is just frustrating when you're prevented from doing this by those who make the rules."
The group has also compiled a list of local disability services which they would like distributed around local hot spots.
Mr Stacy said the report was received warmly by councillors yesterday.
