2010-2020 National Disability Strategy - Second Implementation Plan

The National Disability Strategy 2010–2020 (the strategy) represents a shared national

approach to improving the lives of Australians with disability, their families and carers.

Endorsed by the Council of Australian Governments in February 2011, the strategy is

based on the belief that all Australians—including the 20 per cent with disability—should

have fair and equal access to the full range of mainstream programs and services available;

whether it is employment, healthcare, education, transport, housing or public facilities and


The vision of the strategy is for ‘an inclusive Australian society that enables people with

disability to fulfil their potential as equal citizens’. With this vision firmly in mind, the

strategy’s six outcome areas were developed in consultation with people with disability

and reflect the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with

Disabilities, to which Australia is a signatory. They are:

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.
