Disability Reference Group work plan

The Disability Reference Group (DRG) work plan spans the two calendar years from 2018 to 2019 and focuses on the four main priorities of the group:

  1. reinvigorating the ACT’s Disability Commitment;
  2. increasing the rate of employment of people with disability of working age across all sectors of the Canberra economy (public, private, non-government not for profit, and self-employment);
  3. better health outcomes for all Canberrans with disability; and
  4. reducing the disproportionate levels, and often adverse outcomes, of people with disability’s engagement with ACT justice systems.
