The department's Disability Service Plan 2011-2014 outlines the actions that we will deliver, across the 10 priority areas, to achieve the outcomes of Absolutely everybody.
Our plan demonstrates our commitment to working closely with government, and other key partners, to continue to promote the rights of people with a disability; improve access to information and services; enhance employment opportunities; and contribute to the development of communities that embrace and celebrate diversity.
In 2010, the Queensland Government determined that Absolutely everybody: enabling Queenslanders with a disability would drive the policy direction of Disability Service Plans until 2021. Absolutely everybody: enabling Queenslanders with a disability articulates a vision for the future where communities are inclusive of all Queenslanders and where people with a disability are enabled to lead valued and fulfilling lives. It identifies the key priorities and supporting strategies to achieve this vision and is supported by a whole-of-government action plan which sets out the commitments across government and the responsibilities of lead and supporting agencies to deliver on those commitments.
Our Disability Service Plan has a three-year timeframe and is the mechanism though which our department will report on progress in achieving these whole-of-government commitments.
The strategies and actions in our plan are grouped under the following 10 key priority areas:
- rights and responsibilities
- inclusive communities
- accessible information, places and spaces
- healthy lives
- technology and innovation
- life-long learning
- valued roles in the community and in employment
- strong natural networks
- responsive and effective disability support system
