The Australian Government wants to get more people with disability into jobs. We see a future where people with disability, like other Australians, can enjoy the economic and social freedom work brings.
That’s why a Taskforce has been established to review the entire disability employment system and develop a new National Disability Employment Framework to boost employment rates for people with disability.
In line with the National Disability Insurance Scheme, the new Framework will be designed to deliver better choice and control to people with disability. It will also focus on meeting employer needs and future market directions. The Taskforce will consult widely to inform the development of the Framework.
Have your say!
We want to hear from people with disability, their families and carers, service providers, employers and peak bodies to explore ways to improve disability employment in Australia.
