Reshaping the Disability Services Act 2006

As Queensland transitions to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), we are reviewing the Disability Services Act 2006 to ensure we have laws in place to reflect the changing landscape of how supports for people with disability are funded and delivered across Australia.

The Queensland Government’s role in the disability sector is also changing. Moving forward, our primary focus will be championing accessibility and inclusion of people with disability within the community.

We have created a list of ideas and options for changes to the legislation in the options paper Reshaping the Disability Services Act 2006: an inclusive and accessible Queensland (PDF, 878 KB) Reshaping the Disability Services Act 2006: an inclusive and accessible Queensland (DOCX, 50 KB) and are consulting with Queenslanders on these options.

This document is also available in an Easy Read version (PDF, 7.6 MB) Easy Read version (DOCX, 38 KB).

To find out more, you can view our short videos that explain why we are reviewing the Act, suggested changes to the legislation including some options for worker screening.
