Shape the Future of Disability Policy

Ten years ago the launch of the first National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 (the Strategy) paved the way for how governments could help to improve the lives of people with disability.

At the end of 2020 the Strategy will end, and Governments across Australia are working together to develop a new strategy for beyond 2020.
The strategy will shape the future for all Australians and people with a disability, their families and carers are being asked to have their say on the priorities and actions of the next strategy through a public survey.

An open public survey is now open and will close on 17 June 2019. The survey is available in a range of formats including Auslan video and interactive Easy Read.

It includes some questions that ask you to rate items on a scale and other questions that ask you to write about your views and experiences. It has questions about your views on:

  • The attitudes of people towards disability
  • What things are still issues or barriers for people with disability and what has improved
  • What is important to make a national disability strategy work well.

This survey will take around 20-30 minutes to complete and will be open until5pm, Monday 17 June 2019.

Please try to complete the survey in a single sitting because if you close your web browser before finishing the survey your responses will not be saved.

So grab a cup of tea, settle in and help make a difference in the future of people with disability in Australia.
