Disability service plan

Our Disability Service Plan 2023-26 (PDF, 638.8KB) delivers on the Government’s objectives under Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021–2031 and Queensland's Disability Plan 2022-2027 to improve the lives of people with disability.

Our plan ensures people with a disability have access to the same department services, information and facilities that are available to the broader community and details the actions we will be undertaking to improve this access. The plan also acknowledges the right of people with a disability to participate as equitably as others, bringing to the department a set of unique skills, experiences, perspectives and knowledge.

In addition to the actions in this plan, we are:

  • delivering a range of activities under the Towards Tourism 2032 strategy to enable everyone to participate in a tourism experience with choice and confidence, and lay the foundations for making the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games the world’s most accessible and inclusive sporting event for athletes and spectators.
  • providing funding under the Minor Infrastructure Program for infrastructure projects that enhance community participation in sport and recreation through the provision of spaces that are inclusive and accessible – ensuring no one is excluded from participation.

The department recognises the valuable contribution and input that comes from all employees and service users, including persons living with a disability, and remain committed to inclusivity and accessibility. This commitment drove the development of this Disability Service Plan. To ensure a collaborative and comprehensive approach, consultation was undertaken with representatives from various stakeholders, including individuals with disabilities, advocacy groups, and experts in the field.

The department remains committed to providing inclusive and accessible facilities and activities at our Sport and Recreation venues. We drive action for inclusion in our department by removing barriers embedded in internal structures and systems, to create positive impacts for our current workforce and future employees.
