The Next Ten Years

We are all allies in accessing justiceOver the next ten years the Disability Justice Strategy will guide an important shift in how the justice system interacts with people with disability. In order to be effective, the approach under the strategy will need to be innovative, consultative and responsive to changing circumstances. The strategy will be a ‘living document’, as opposed to a static one, driven by the action plans, so that as we learn new things adaptions can be made.

It is particularly important that we continue to listen to people with disability, their carers and families and involve them at every stage over the lifetime of the Disability Justice Strategy.
