It also outlines work the government is doing to make Australia safer and more inclusive for people with disability. It includes some of the key actions already taken to address issues raised during the Disability Royal Commission’s inquiry.

The government is carefully considering the Disability Royal Commission’s 222 recommendations, and will continue to consult with people with disability, their families, carers, representative organisations, service providers and the broader community to inform a response that will drive meaningful and lasting change.
