Statement of Continued Commitment: National Disability Strategy 2010–2020
On 4 December 2020, Disability Reform Ministers endorsed the Statement of Continued Commitment to the original National Disability Strategy 2010–2020 (original Strategy).
The original Strategy’s term was due to expire at the end of the 2020 calendar year. Development of the next strategy, Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021–2031, was delayed as people with disability, their families and supporters asked for public consultations to be deferred due to COVID-19 to a time when they could be held more safely.
The statement confirmed the Australian Government and state, territory and local governments remained committed to the original Strategy, and would continue their efforts and uphold the rights of people with disability while Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021–2031 was being finalised.
