As we pass the half-way point in COAG's 2010-2020 National Disability Strategy, it is time to consider the progress Australia has made and how far we have yet to go.
This is particularly critical within the new paradigm set by the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Queensland Advocacy Inc. promotes, protects and defends, through advocacy, the fundamental needs and rights and lives of the most vulnerable people with disability in Queensland. QAI invites people to attend their 30 year Celebration Dinner to follow.
Griffith University is proud to join with Queensland Advocacy Inc. on this forum, which brings together people with disability, their families, researchers, professionals and committed citizens to ask challenging questions and to identify some answers.
Review the six priority areas in the National Disability Strategy to improve the lives of people with disability, their families and carers.
Identify the gaps in the 2015-2018 Implementation Plan.
Enlist in action to ensure the original commitments made by COAG are met.
Edward Santow, Human Rights Commissioner
