The Coalition's spokesman on Disabilities, Senator Mitch Fifield has applauded the launch of Children with Disability Australia, the new national peak body representing children and young people with disabilities.

Attending today's launch in Melbourne, Senator Fifield said the peak body will be an advocate for better services, helping inform governments and the community of the needs of children with disabilities and their families.

"Children with Disability Australia will help achieve better outcomes for children with disabilities and their families by raising awareness of the challenges they face and advocating their rights," Senator Fifield said.

"It will promote and advance their rights and highlight where services can be improved.

"Families will also be able to learn of entitlements and services available to them through Children with Disability Australia.

"By being there to inform families of what's available and where, and to ensure that their needs are being voiced to governments and the community, the peak body will be welcomed by children with disabilities and their families who face many challenges on a daily basis."
