Australia's Disability Strategy

Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021-2031 (ADS) provides a strategic framework and identifies the outcomes we need to achieve to advance the human rights of people with disability. It calls on all Australians to create an inclusive Australian society that ensures people with disability can fulfil their potential, as equal members of the community.

Queensland’s Disability Plan will be the primary mechanism we use to drive implementation of the ADS in Queensland.
