Ramp Up says goodbye

News story clip-art iconIn a note today from the Ramp Up team they confirm publication of the site will cease on June 30. In the brief time the revamped QSSS website has been online we’ve found the Ramp Up site one of the best places for detailed disability-related news and opinion.

This is part of what they had to say:

The publication of ABC Ramp Up will cease on 30 June, however the website will remain online as a resource for the disability community. Current comments will remain while new comments on articles will be closed.


Over the last three and a half years, Ramp Up has published over 500 pieces of original content, facilitated discussion on a broad range of disability issues, developed a strong social media presence and, perhaps most importantly, published stories and perspectives that put forward a strong case for the establishment of the NDIS. We’ve also had the honour of publishing great work from many talented, emerging writers with disability.


On a positive note the site will stay up as an online resource but we will miss the ongoing efforts of Stella Young and Karen Palenzuela, the Ramp Up team.
