National Disability Strategy

Purpose of the National Disability Strategy

The National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 sets out a 10-year national policy framework for improving life for Australians with disability, their families and carers. The strategy represents a commitment by all levels of government, industry and the community to a unified, national approach to policy and program development. This new approach will assist in addressing the challenges faced by people with disability, both now and into the future.

The National Disability Strategy aims to influence the planning, design and delivery of mainstream policies, programs, services and infrastructure, as well as the specialist disability services system, so that people with disability can participate as equal citizens in all areas of Australian life.

The Strategy is structured under six broad policy outcome areas:

  1. Inclusive and accessible communities
  2. Rights, protection, justice and legislation
  3. Economic security
  4. Personal and community support
  5. Learning and skills
  6. Health and wellbeing

The National Disability Strategy has been agreed to by all levels of government.
