Disability plan released for Queensland’s inclusive, accessible future
As part of Disability Action Week, the state government released Queensland’s Disability Plan 2022–27: Together – a Better Queensland. Written in collaboration with people with disability, the five-year plan represents for the government a new phase towards an accessible and inclusive state for people with disability.
This is the first plan for disability since Queensland’s full transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and builds on the former plan, All Abilities Queensland.
Aligning with Australia’s Disability Strategy, Queensland’s plan highlights seven priorities for action: employment, inclusive homes, safety, community support, education, health and community attitudes.
The plan also allows for the unique aspects of the state’s peoples, regions and diversity, so each of the more than 900,000 Queenslanders with disability has an opportunity to live to their full potential.
Following the release of the state disability plan, Queensland Government agencies will develop their own disability plans to deliver on priorities.
The plan also encourages all levels of government, businesses, industries and organisations to develop and promote inclusion plans, with links to online resources to support planning.
