The department’s Disability Service Plan 2017–2020 (PDF, 179 KB) (the Plan) has been reviewed and updated to reflect the structure of the newly formed Department of Local Government, Racing and Multicultural Affairs. The Plan addresses the department’s commitment to the priorities in All Abilities Queensland: Opportunities for All – State disability plan 2017–2020.
The Plan supports initiatives that help build a Queensland where people with disability are respected for their abilities, and have equal access to opportunities to contribute and participate in all that Queensland offers.
In addition, the Plan reflects the department’s commitment to supporting and encouraging a workforce that is representative of the community. It aims to dismantle structural barriers, be responsive to emerging issues, and to improve access to services for Queenslanders with disability. It reflects the department’s commitment to fair and equitable access and equality of opportunity both internally with staff and externally in dealings with the wider Queensland community.
