The NSW Disability Inclusion Plan provides direction to government and a framework for partnership with people with disability, key agencies and members of the community.
Disability Inclusion Action Plans operationalise the four focus areas of the NSW Disability Inclusion Plan and provide an approach to addressing issues through engagement, planning and co-design of solutions.
The resources on this page are provided to assist in the development of actions targeting the four focus areas.
Family and Community Services has commissioned a review of the evidence on disability employment.
Attitudes toward, and beliefs about, people with disability are important determinants of social inclusion. Misconceptions, negative attitudes and a lack of knowledge can affect many aspects of life for people with disabilities, including employment opportunities. Research on community attitudes toward inclusion of people with disabilities, and employer attitudes toward workers with disabilities, indicates that stigmatisation is still prevalent. Changing negative community and employer attitudes toward people with disabilities, and challenging stigma, is likely to make a positive contribution toward greater inclusion.
