Renewal of the Disability Action plan - update August 2018

The current Disability Action Plan (2014-2018) is due for renewal.

The current Disability Action Plan (2014-2018) is due for renewal. We will also be consulting on the priority actions for the new Disability Action Plan (2019 – 2022).

The Minister for Disability Issues, Hon Carmel Sepuloni, has been taking the opportunities when she visits the regions to meet with disabled people and listen to ideas on what might be in the new Action Plan. Those visits have included Whangarei, Tauranga, Invercargill and Rotorua.

There are six key issues that have already been highlighted by the Independent Monitoring Mechanism (the Human Rights Commission, the Office of the Ombudsman and the Disabled People's Organisations Coalition) for progress with Ministers in the new Action Plan: employment, housing, disability data, accessible government information, inclusive education and seclusion and restraint.

There will be some incomplete actions from the current Action Plan which will need continued work in the new Action Plan alongside other new actions.

This work is now being progressed.
