The NSW Disability Inclusion Plan was launched on 26 February 2015 at the Sydney Opera House.

The plan is the NSW Government’s commitment to identifying and breaking down the barriers which prevent those with disability from enjoying the same opportunities and choices as everyone else.

It aligns with the Australian National Disability Strategy and our obligations under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The plan has four focus areas that are aimed at creating long term change and require consistent efforts from government and the wider community. The focus areas are:

  1. Developing positive community attitudes and behaviours
  2. Creating liveable communities
  3. Supporting access to meaningful employment
  4. Improving access to mainstream services through better systems and processes

You can access resources for these four focus areas at the Disability Inclusion Action Planning Resources page.
