The 2016 Progress Report Stakeholder Survey


The 2016 Progress Report Stakeholder Survey

We wanted to hear your thoughts about disability policy in Australia!

If you are a person with disability, a family member, a carer, or are you just interested in the rights of people with disability?

We asked you to tell us what you think about the lives of people with disability in Australia. This included questions about things like health care, employment and access to the local community for people with disability.

The department sought answers to a survey to tell us how things have improved in the last two years. This feedback will help us understand what areas need to improve under the National Disability Strategy.

The National Disability Strategy

The National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 (the Strategy) helps us to create better policies, programs and communities so people with disability are able to lead happy and fulfilling lives.  The Strategy identifies six areas that people with disability are concerned about.  They are:

  1. Taking part in the in the community
  2. Your rights to fair treatment
  3. Work and money
  4. Personal and community support
  5. Learning and Skills
  6. Health and Wellbeing

What will my feedback be used for?

Your feedback will help inform the 2016 Progress Report.  Reporting is an important part of the Strategy.  Every two years we develop a progress report that looks at the achievements of the Strategy.  An important part of the report is finding out what people with disability, their families and carers think.  We also work with other government agencies and state and territory governments to collect feedback and data to help inform the 2016 Progress Report.

How can I access the survey?

The survey could be completed online online.
