The department's Disability Service Plan 2014-2016 reaffirms our commitment to the human rights and service delivery principles of the Disability Services Act 2006 and outlines the actions we will take to deliver on priorities under Queensland's overarching disability plan.
The Disability Service Plan outlines actions which are concrete, practical and aimed at overcoming barriers to social and economic participation through a collaborative approach with the sector and across government.
As the lead agency for disability services many of the actions highlighted in the Disability Service Plan are grounded in core business. The department also has a key role in the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme in Queensland, a historic and significant reform for people with disability, their carers and families.
