Independence Educational Publishers UK  produce Issues, a series of cross-curricular resource books for 14 -18 year olds. Each book (there are currently 70 in print) has a number of cartoon illustrations by three (Australian!) cartoonists – Don Hatcher, Angelo Madrid and me. These are a few of my cartoons from the latest books covering health, eating disorders, housing, child abuse and money issues.

There are many young people with disabilities living in nursing homes.  The new National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) promises a great step forward for supporting people with disabilities getting on with their lives.  However, as  this Pro Bono News post explains, it will not help those young people in aged care nursing homes as there is already a lack of suitable and affordable housing for all young people with disabilities. Research has found that ’53 per cent of young people in residential aged care received a visit from a friend less than once a year’.

Here is my cartoon for the Pro Bono website:

Affordable housing doesn’t seem like a big ask ….
