Disability Action Plans

A disability action plan or DAP, is a document that organisations prepare and use in order to reduce and remove barriers experienced by people with a disability. The Victorian Disability Act 2006 requires all public sector bodies to have a DAP.  A DAP can help reduce discrimination and increase the access for people with a disability to everyday services and employment. DAPs are also useful in addressing attitudinal barriers in organisations and communities.

Common barriers include physical access to buildings, access to information, access to community services and programs, access to employment. By using the steps of a DAP, organisations work to locate these barriers and plan to take the necessary actions to reduce or remove them.
