    Disability Service Plan 2017–2020

    The Disability Services Act (Qld) 2006 (the Act) provides a foundation for promoting the rights of Queenslanders with disability, increasing their wellbeing and encouraging their participation in community life. All Abilities Queensland: opportunities for all (state disability plan 2017–2020) sets a vision of “Opportunities for all Queenslanders” and five priority areas to guide action by the Queensland Government and encourage others to act to bring the plan to life:

    • communitites for all
    • lifelong learning
    • employment
    • everyday services
    • leadership and participation.

    The Department of the Premier and Cabinet has developed a Disability Service Plan 2017-2020 which builds on, and complements, the actions identified in the state disability plan and aligns with Queensland’s commitments under the National Disability Strategy 2010–2020 (NDS) and its second implementation plan, Driving Action 2015–2018. The three year plan acknowledges Queensland’s transition and full implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in 2019 and includes actions that the department will take to support the transition and also to ensure mainstream services are responsive and accessible to all Queenslanders with disability.

    The Department of the Premier and Cabinet Disability Service Plan 2017–2020 recognises that we have a collective responsibility for ensuring that our services and systems must be more inclusive for all Queenslanders, particularly for people with a disability, and focuses on strategies and actions to deliver our ongoing goal of creating real and lasting change and promoting inclusion and diversity in all its forms.

    The department will report its progress against the initiatives contained in this plan annually.
