Our Disability Action Plan 2018-2021

Our agency’s plan to support the Tasmanian Government’s Accessible Island: Disability Framework for Action 2018-2021

Accessible Island: Disability Framework for Action (Accessible Island) is Tasmania’s third Disability Framework for Action (DFA) and has four-year coverage from 2018 to 2021. The DFA is a whole-of-government approach to policy and planning, service delivery and evaluation that seeks to remove barriers and enable people with disability to enjoy the same rights and opportunities as other Tasmanians.

To support the DFA, the Department of Communities Tasmania and Department of Health have prepared the Interim Disability Action Plan 2018-2021 (the DAP) to outline how we will meet the commitments listed under Accessible Island, as they relate to the former Department of Health and Human Services (abolished 30 June 2018).

Our DAP complements existing work that the Departments already undertake, including our work to improve, promote, protect and maintain the health, safety and wellbeing of Tasmanians.

An accessible Word version of the DAP is available.
