  • People with disability, including those from diverse and underserviced groups, are represented and actively participate in decision-making processes within the department. 

Pillar 2: Health, housing and wellbeing 

  • Foster inclusive and accessible environments, services and opportunities for people with disability in all aspects of community life. 

Pillar 3: Fairness and safety 

  • Promote the rights and dignity of people with disability, encouraging disability pride, recognition and respect for diversity. 

Pillar 4: Opportunity and pride 

  • Support the development of more leaders with disability, focusing on providing opportunities for personal and professional growth. 

The department also sets out its disability employment commitments and actions to:
