Disability reform Stage 2 consultation

Latest News:

National Disability Strategy - Stage 2 Consultations - Submission period extended to 31 October 2020

Have your say

On 29 July 2020, Senator the Hon Anne Ruston, Minister for Families and Social Services, released the National Disability Strategy Position Paper (the Position Paper) and announced the commencement of Stage 2 consultations for the new National Disability Strategy.

Since consultations opened, many people have already shared their feedback on the key features that governments are proposing to include in the new National Disability Strategy.

The Department of Social Services is still seeking people’s feedback on the Position Paper and invites all Australians – especially those with disability – to have their say by reading the Position Paper and providing a submission or answering the questions in the guided questionnaire.

Your feedback will be an important input to further develop the new National Disability Strategy for release in 2021, driving real, practical improvements for Australians with disability over the coming decade.

The submission process has now been extended to allow you more time to provide your feedback. Submissions will now close on 31 October 2020.
