Mum takes on Ministry of Health over funding allowance
The mother of a disabled man fighting for more money as a caregiver is ecstatic with the Court of Appeal's order to the Ministry of Health to revisit its funding allowance.
The court ruled that the ministry must revisit its decision to only pay Diane Moody minimum wage for 17 hours a week of care. This is despite Diane looking after her disabled son for almost every waking hour of the day.
Diane Moody joins Ali Mau on RadioLIVE Drive to tell her story.
She told RadioLIVE she is happy with the outcome after a long-running legal battle, saying it was more about the principle than the money.
