INVOLVED is a web platform demonstrating the ACT Government’s Commitment to Canberrans with disability and the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020. The ACT inclusion initiatives on the INVOLVED web platform are listed under headings that encompass the respective NDS policy and life domains - with some separation of key issues that require an individual focus:

This format enables the community to understand how we are taking action to increase inclusion in the ACT in each of the priority areas. The website provides information on each of the initiatives as well as videos and links to resources like the Comprehensive Health Assessment Program (CHAP) tool.

What does INVOLVED do?

The ACT Disability Commitment supports and complements the NDIS investment in individuals, by assisting mainstream community, business and government sectors to become fully inclusive.

The new web platform INVOLVED draws attention to the inclusion occurring in Canberra. In addition to informing the community on who is making efforts to be inclusive in the ACT, the INVOLVED platform provides tools to assist the community, business and government to be more inclusive of people with disability.

It is intended to serve as a contemporary communication tool capable of informing community in real time. An inbuilt function allows members of the community to register their disability-focused events or training activities in a calendar format in the What’s On sectionExternal Link

news sectionExternal Link has been included to update the community on the latest initiatives and activities in the community.
