Laura Cowell is a Sutherland Shire councillor and Australian CEO of Tender Loving Care, which delivers disability services. She said that many people in the community simply don’t understand how complex it is to change or review policy at all levels and how each government tier has different roles and responsibilities.

“Most people don’t actually know the differences between each of those levels and what the constraints are for the people involved,” Cowell said.
