We are keen to hear from a wide variety of people to gain feedback on what they think the functions and role of an office of disability should be.

A community engagement period will be open until 6 September 2020 to gather this feedback.

The engagement process provides a unique opportunity for people with disability, their families, carers, disability support organisations and the broader community to share their views about what is needed to improve outcomes for people with disability, their families and carers.

An internal working group and an external reference group will be established to help guide the creation of an office and offer advice, opinion and input. The project team will work in partnership with these groups to establish an office of disability.

Have your say

Please access the discussion paper then have your say using the feedback form.

Feedback on the functions and role of the office as outlined in this discussion paper must be provided by 6 September 2020:
