Shaping the future of disability policy for 2020 and beyond

March 21, 2019

The National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 is about creating a more inclusive society that enables Australians with disability to fulfil their potential as equal citizens.

It is also the main way Australia implements the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Australia, making sure people with disability can participate in all areas of Australian life.

The Strategy is a shared commitment by all governments to work together to improve the lives of Australians with disability by guiding governments and other organisations to build the wellbeing of people with disability and their carers.

A public consultation workshop to help shape disability policy for 2020 and beyond.

The National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 is Australia’s framework for creating a more inclusive society that enables people with disability to fulfil their potential as equal citizens.

At the end of 2020 the National Disability Strategy will end and governments across Australia are working together to develop a new strategy for beyond 2020. We need to make sure a new strategy reflects the changing policy environment and builds on opportunities available today as well as what may emerge over the next decade.

From April, the Australian community is invited to take part in national consultation to shape the future of disability policy for 2020 and beyond.

There will be face-to-face and online workshops held in each state and territory. At the workshops you can share your experiences and help shape the next strategy as it is vital people with disability have a leading role in modernising the policies and programs that affect them.
