NSW Disability Inclusion Plan

The NSW Disability Inclusion Plan 2021-2025 (PDF , 2.5 MB) (DIP) was launched on 19 November 2021 by Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Alister Henskens.

The NSW DIP strengthens the state’s accessibility framework and outlines work underway to improve outcomes for people with disability.

This four-year plan builds on the work the NSW Government has undertaken to create more accessible and inclusive communities and provides the blueprint for increasing the social and economic participation of people with disability across NSW.

It aligns with the Australia's Disability Strategy and our obligations under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

All local councils and NSW Government clusters have disability inclusion action plans which put the principles of the Disability Inclusion Plan into practice.

The NSW Disability Inclusion Plan 2021-2025 provides a whole of government strategy. The plan has four focus areas that sets out how the NSW Government will improve the lives of people with disability. The focus areas are:

  1. Developing positive community attitudes and behaviours
  2. Creating liveable communities
  3. Supporting access to meaningful employment
  4. Improving access to mainstream services through better systems and processes.

NSW Disability Inclusion Action Plan

The NSW Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2021 - 2025 (PDF , 562.9 KB) supports the NSW Disability Inclusion Plan. It sets out actions under the four focus areas of the plan.

You can access resources for these four focus areas at the Disability Inclusion Action Planning Resources page.
