Provide feedback on the State Disability Inclusion Plan

2019-08-06

The State Government wants to hear from people with disability, their families and carers, and anyone interested in promoting the inclusion of people with disability, to create South Australia’s first State Disability Inclusion Plan.

The four-year plan, which will be finalised later this year, aims to improve access and inclusion across the community for people with disability.

The plan is a much-needed step forward for all people with disability and will list outcome areas to specifically improve access and inclusion.

In March and April this year, the government consulted with South Australians about what was important to them and asked them to share their ideas for how to make SA more inclusive.

It is now returning to the community to share what was heard and seek further feedback on priorities and ideas for change, as we develop the state plan.

Four themes

The proposed plan includes four themes:

  1. leading and collaborating in decision-making
  2. inclusive communities for all
  3. accessible communities
  4. learning and employment.

It was informed by more than 380 people at forums, online, over the phone and through written submissions. They shared more than 1,000 ideas and 240 actions that’s now compiled together into this draft plan.

To help finalise the plan, members of the public have four weeks to provide any further comments on the draft plan content online, via email, phone or post.

Share your views

To read the draft plan and share your views on what shape the first State Disability Inclusion Plan should take, please visit YourSAy by 30 August 2019.

The plan is a direct result of the Disability Inclusion Act 2018, which aims to support people with disability to fulfil their potential as citizens. The Act provides a legal framework to support equal access and participation for people with disability in the community including in recreation, education, health, employment and transport.
