A more inclusive Victoria new disability plan to promote inclusion

The Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing Martin Foley launched the government’s plan for a more inclusive Victoria on 3 December to celebrate the International Day of People with Disability.

Absolutely everyone is the state disability plan of the Victorian Government for 2017–2020. It contains  a range of action for achieving greater inclusion, working in partnership with the community. 

The plan tackles the negative attitudes and barriers that more than one million Victorians with a disability deal with on a daily basis.

The plan sets out the government’s priorities and actions for achieving inclusion under four key pillars:

  • inclusive communities
  • health, housing and wellbeing
  • fairness and safety and
  • contributing lives.

The plan outlines how the government will continue supporting people with a disability, whether or not they are NDIS participants.

The priorities and early actions included in the plan are the first step to achieving the government’s long-term vision. The plan is based on the voices and experiences of people with a disability. The consultation feedback and submissions were critical to the development of the plan and its vision. All departments contributed to this whole-of-government plan.

Working in partnership with business and communities is critical in changing attitudes and outcomes. More information on the implementation of the plan will be available from early 2017.
