The State Government is developing a 10-year State Disability Plan (the Plan) to build an inclusive community which supports and empowers people with disability.
The aim is to engage, listen and understand the needs of the community - including people with disability, their families and carers as well as those working in the sector. Importantly, it is not just for people with disability, but for all Western Australians who want to live in an inclusive community.
Consultation with the community will take place through 2019 in a variety of forms through three stages.

The process to Build a 10-year Plan is underway and includes an approach of co-design where people with disability are at the centre of the process.
Communities is partnering with People With disabilities WA (PWdWA), who have established a co-design group. Additional consultation is also taking place throughout the state between August - September to build on the 1600 ideas received through Exploring our Community in a more targeted way.
