What does inclusion and access means to you? How we can continue to foster more welcoming and inclusive communities for everyone?
What is being decided?
We are creating a State Disability Inclusion Plan, or State Plan, to promote the inclusion of people with disability in our community and economy.
The State Government is committed to progressing access and inclusion for people with disability to ensure all South Australians have an opportunity to thrive. The State Plan will set whole-of-government priorities and strategies for achieving a more inclusive South Australia in line with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
The State Plan will set out the vision and principles that we would like to implement over the next four years in South Australia. We are seeking your feedback on how we can remove barriers and reduce discrimination. We want to know what’s important to you and how our community can promote participation for all South Australians.
Contribute to the first State Disability Inclusion Plan, and help create our shared vision for a community where everyone can participate in social, economic and civic life. Let’s build an inclusive South Australia.
We have prepared a State Plan Discussion Paper which explains the purpose of the plan and asks some questions about access and inclusion in our community for you to give us your feedback.
We are keen to hear from everyone, including people with lived experience as well as other members of the community.

How will your input be used?
The first State Disability Inclusion Plan 2019-2023 will be shaped by your feedback and ideas.
All feedback received over the course of the consultation period will be collated and reviewed. Emerging themes and priorities will be used to draft the first State Plan.
Once we have drafted the Plan there will be another opportunity to provide feedback on the final plan through YourSAy before it is published in October 2019.
