Our Disability Action Plan 2019-2021

Our agency’s plan to support the Tasmanian Government’s Accessible Island: Disability Framework for Action 2018-2021

We want to live in a Tasmania where people living with disability can live their lives as they choose, without barriers that may restrict their participation in everyday life and the community. This is our Agency’s response to Accessible Island: Tasmania’s Disability Framework for Action 2018‑2021, the whole-of-government plan for ensuring Tasmanian government agencies are providing services in ways that are accessible, inclusive and considerate to the needs of all their clients, including people with disability.

This new action plan for Communities Tasmania supports the underpinning principles and vision of Accessible Island and builds on the progress we have made implementing actions in the previous Department of Health and Department of Communities Tasmania Joint Interim Disability Action Plan July 2018. We are committed to building on past successes while recognising that there is always scope for improvement.

As such, we will continue to improve the accessibility of our services and information, collaborating with local government, business and not-for-profit sectors, and identifying new opportunities to improve participation and promote inclusive practices across our Agency’s activities. In our capacity as an employer, we will continue to strive to build a workforce that represents the broader Tasmanian community and reduce barriers to employment at Communities Tasmania.
