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. When the strategy ends in 2020, governments across Australia will be working together to develop a new approach for the future.

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

Consultations will ensure people with disability are at the centre of the design of the new strategy and have a leading role in modernising policies and programs affecting their lives.

The first stage takes place between April and June 2019. There will be a range of options available to ensure you can have a say. Importantly, all consultation will be accessible to people with disability.

You can have your say through:

  • an open public survey (available from mid-April)
  • face-to-face community workshops in every state and territory (beginning 29 April)
  • and online forum (beginning from mid-May).

Face-to-face workshops are scheduled in Queensland on Monday 29 April 2019 (Brisbane) and Wednesday 1 May 2019 (Townsville).
