Mariners give their support to crucial campaign

Join the Central Coast Mariners and make your voice count in support of a National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Central Coast Mariners have become the first team of any football code in New South Wales to endorse Every Australian Counts - the campaign for the introduction of a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

The NDIS will revolutionise the way people with a disability, their families and carers are supported in Australia.

Whether at work, school, or at home, the NDIS aims to change lives by ensuring disabled people have increased choice and control over their lives.

It will also ensure the way services are funded and delivered to people living with a disability is transformed.

Late last week, star Mariners players including Matt Simon, Patrick Zwaanswijk and Joshua Rose, as well as assistant coach Phil Moss, took time out of training to represent the Central Coast community in support of the Every Australian Counts campaign.

Mariners CEO, John McKay, said the club is always pleased to use the Central Coast Mariners brand for positive causes.

“The Mariners are very proud to support the Every Australian Counts campaign to raise awareness of the need for a National Disability Insurance Scheme,” McKay said.
