This Disability Action Plan gives effect to the Department of Justice activities specified in Accessible Island – Tasmania’s Disability Framework for Action 2018-2021 (external link).
A broad range of initiatives is already underway across the Department (see our latest report), aimed at ensuring equal access for all our clients and staff. We continue to make advances in terms of access to information, infrastructure, employment and services.
The actions set out in this plan build on the work already underway, as well as guide our future actions. Critical to this will be linkages to the Disability Justice Plan for Tasmania 2017-2020, which brings together many existing commitments across the justice system and supplements these with further targeted strategies.
The Department’s latest report against the Disability Justice Plan is now available.
