Rick Neagle, HARTLEY
President of Dignity Party, Rick Neagle’s interest in furthering the rights of people with disabilities comes from his experience as father and carer to his son Mitchell, who has autism. Rick is dedicated to seeing all people with a disability and their families and supporters being included in all aspects of our society.
A qualified sports physiotherapist, Rick understands the pressure on health professionals when resources that are necessary to support the lives of people with a disability are in short supply. “It’s not good enough, we must strive now to see real change,” says Rick Neagle.
Rick played with the Norwood Redlegs, and is well known locally.
“I’m working towards a fairer deal for people with a disability, their families and supporters because it says a lot about a society, the way we treat people who are disadvantaged in any way.”
