About the current National Disability Strategy

The National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 (the current Strategy) is the commitment of all governments to a unified, national approach to building inclusion for people with disability.

The current strategy is about creating a more inclusive society that enables Australians with disability to fulfil their potential as equal citizens. It is the main way that Australia implements the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The National Disability Agreement, introduced by the Council of Australian Governments in 2009, is a high level agreement between the Australian and state and territory governments for the provision of disability services for people with disability. It features clear roles and responsibilities for each level of government and joins these efforts together through nationally agreed objectives and outcomes for people with disability, their families and carers. For more information on the current Strategy please go to the About People with Disability in Australia section on the DSS website.
