Tasmanian Disability Framework for Action 2013-2017

The second Disability Framework for Action 2013-2017 and Departmental Action Plans

The Disability Framework for Action 2013-2017 was a whole-of-government policy to remove barriers and enable people with disability to enjoy the same rights and opportunities as all other Tasmanians.

In 2013, Tasmanian Government departments developed new Disability Action Plans to align with the Disability Framework for Action 2013-2017.

The Disability Framework for Action required each Government department, as part of their strategic and business planning, to prepare a disability action plan which set out how the needs of people with disability will be considered in the design and delivery of their policies, programs, services and facilities.

Agency disability action plans identified specific actions to achieve goals and objectives that will improve outcomes for people with disability in the following areas:

  • disability awareness and responsiveness
  • access to government buildings and facilities
  • access to information
  • employment opportunities
  • policy development
  • service delivery

All Departments provided an annual report to the Premier's Disability Advisory Council on their progress in implementing the Disability Framework for Action 2013-17.
