Australia's Disability Strategy 2021-2031

The launch of Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021-2031 aims to improve the lives of 4.4 million Australians with disability – including almost 1 in 5 Queenslanders.

The Strategy has been developed by all levels of government in consultation with people with disability, their families, carers and representatives. The voices of more than 3,000 generous people and organisations have informed development of the Strategy and its priorities.

Over the next decade, the Strategy will drive initiatives to ensure greater inclusion and participation of people with disability in all areas of Australian life including employment, housing, education and health and wellbeing.

What we are doing

The Strategy reaffirms Queensland’s commitment as part of national efforts to enhance opportunities for people with disability and shift community attitudes to enable full inclusion and accessibility.

The Queensland Government is developing a new State Disability Plan to support delivery of the Strategy priorities and guide our continued actions to improve the lives of Queenslanders with disability.

We are also undertaking a wide range of actions that focus on improving outcomes in the priority areas of employment, community attitudes, early childhood, safety and emergency management.
