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.

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