Consultation summary (Easy English)
Review of laws that aim to help people with disability aim to give people a better chance to live well in our community. There are many ways to achieve something in our community. One way is for the government to put in place a law that has one or more aims. For people with a disability, there is a law that is supposed to help them have a better chance to be involved in the community and help to make their life easier. This is called the Disability Inclusion Act.
This law says that government departments and your local council should do things to help people with disability to have the support and services that everyone else enjoys, to be able to live as independently as possible, and to be involved in decisions that affect them personally.
If you are a person with disability or know someone with a disability, it would be great if you could think about some things that we should know about.
For example, we would like to know about the extent to which you feel that you have the chance to do things that other people do, especially when you are out in the community.
We also want to know if you feel that you can make choices about your life.
It is also important that you do not find it too hard to move around the community and whether you think that it should be easier. It is important that you can make the most of your abilities and that you are not stopped from doing what you want to do.
This is all being considered by someone who will provide advice to the government about how well these laws and things done by the government and local councils are helping people with disability to have a better chance to live a really good life.
