NSW Disability Inclusion Plan launched

Published

Minister for Disability Services, John Ajaka officially launched the NSW Disability Inclusion Plan on 26th February. The plan is one of the first steps to implement the Disability Inclusion Act 2014, which encapsulates the rights of people with disability into NSW law.

The NSW Disability Inclusion Plan and the Disability Inclusion Action Plans of individual NSW government departments will be important tools in planning and providing more accessible services for people with disabilities, as well as building communities that are more inclusive. 

The plans focus on four key areas;

  • developing positive community attitudes and behaviours
  • creating liveable communities
  • supporting access to meaningful employment
  • improving access to mainstream services through better systems and processes

Designing the most effective solutions and identifying additional priorities for the plan will require a collaborative approach, with key government, non-government, private sector and community partners. The ongoing involvement of people with disability in the design, implementation and evaluation of the plan will be key to its outcome.
