Disabled people were kicked off the property at Auckland’s Laura Fergusson Trust rehabilitation centre on Sunday as hundreds rallied to halt its closure, TVNZ reports. The Greenlane centre, which has been providing rehabilitation for young people with disabilities for decades, shut its doors in 2020 citing fund shortage as the main reason. The Laura Fergusson board declined an offer from the Ministry of Health to explore new ways of providing services under their Ministry contracts.
