Updated: Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021-2031
What does the Strategy do?
The Strategy’s vision is for an inclusive Australian society that ensures people with disability can fulfil their potential, as equal members of the community. The Strategy sets out practical changes that will assist people with disability.
In line with Australia’s commitments under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the Strategy helps in protecting, promoting and realising the human rights of people with disability.
- Provides national leadership towards greater inclusion of people with disability.
- Guides activity across all areas of public policy to be inclusive and responsive to people with disability.
- Drives mainstream services and systems to improve outcomes for people with disability.
- Engages, informs and involves the whole community in achieving a more inclusive society.
What are the seven Outcome Areas?
The Strategy has seven Outcome Areas. These are the areas people with disability said need to improve.
The Outcome Areas are:
- Employment and Financial Security
- Inclusive Homes and Communities
- Safety, Rights and Justice
- Personal and Community Support
- Education and Learning
- Health and Wellbeing

Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021-2031 builds on the work of the original strategy, the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020.
