Disability Employment Framework consultation flyer

Second Round of Public Consultation

The Australian Government wants to get more people with disability into jobs. We see a future where people with disability, like other Australians, can enjoy the economic and social gains work brings.

The Disability Employment Taskforce was established to review the entire disability employment system and develop a new National Disability Employment Framework to boost employment rates for people with disability.

To assist in the development of this Framework, we completed a first round of consultation based on an Issues Paper and a set of suggested principles for the new Framework.

Building on the principles and feedback from the first round of consultation, a Discussion

Paper has been developed outlining more detailed policy proposals for the new Framework, and will be used as the basis of a second round of consultation.

Have your say!

Information sessions will be conducted in each capital city that will present the findings from the first round of consultation; provide an overview of the Discussion Paper; and encourage feedback on the policy proposals through an online survey.  The survey will remain open until 7 December 2015.

We want to hear from people with disability, their families and carers, service providers, employers and peak bodies to explore ways to improve disability employment in Australia.

Information sessions will be held around Australia starting on 19 November 2015, in the following locations:

  • Perth - 19 November 2015    
  • Adelaide - 20 November 2015
  • Brisbane - 24 November 2015
  • Sydney - 25 November 2015
  • Hobart - 26 November 2015
  • Darwin - 26 November 2015
  • Canberra - 27 November 2015    
  • Melbourne - 30 November 2015

The Discussion Paper, survey and full details of the information sessions, including registration, will be available on the Engage website.
