Absolutely everyone is the state disability plan 2017–2020 for the whole of the Victorian Government. We are committing to a range of action for achieving greater inclusion, in partnership with the community.

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

It sets out our priorities and actions for achieving inclusion under four key pillars:

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

The plan focuses on key areas to drive change such as adopting a universal design approach, changing attitudes, increasing access to affordable housing, public transport, schools and jobs. We are also ensuring that people with a disability are able to make the most of the NDIS through a series of actions. These include working with communities to identify and address barriers to participation.

The plan’s priorities and early actions are the first step to achieving the government’s long-term vision for inclusion.

The ideas in the plan are based on feedback and contributions from people with a disability, and submissions received during consultation.

The plan is also available in a number of accessible formats:

We will provide information on the implementation of the plan from early next year.
