Disability Framework for Action

The Tasmanian Government has a new whole-of-government policy for action to remove barriers and enable people with disability to enjoy the same rights and opportunities as all other Tasmanians.

The Disability Framework for Action 2013-2017:

  • sets out the Government’s vision for Tasmania as an inclusive and caring community
    applies to all Tasmanian Government agencies
  • provides a direction for action by Government
  • enables people with disability, their families and carers to work in partnership with the Government
  • promotes leadership across all State Government agencies to institute a ‘whole-of-government’ approach to policy and planning, service delivery and evaluation
  • includes a performance monitoring framework

The Disability Framework for Action 2013-2017 was launched in December 2012 by Premier Lara Giddings.

During 2013, Tasmanian Government agencies will be developing new Disability Action Plans to align with the Disability Framework for Action 2013-2017.
