What is in this interim review?
Inclusive SA 2019–2023 set out whole-of-government actions and measures for State Government agencies and local councils to improve access and inclusion for South Australians living with disability.
Implementation of these actions is critical in helping us achieve the State Government’s vision for an accessible and inclusive South Australia based on fairness and respect – an important vision for the 1 in 5 South Australians living with disability.
The original 39 actions within Inclusive SA were categorised under four key themes and reflected what we heard during the extensive, wide-ranging consultation. These four themes were:
- Inclusive Communities for All
- Leadership and Collaboration
- Learning and Employment
- Accessible Communities.
With the launch of Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021–2031 (ADS), Inclusive SA has seen these 39 actions be realigned to better reflect shifting priorities and support the outcomes and deliverables of the State’s Targeted Action Plans (TAPs), which have been designed to help drive better implementation and accountability of the new ADS.
The realignment of actions has included reclassifying them under the new ADS Outcome Areas:
- Employment and Financial Security
- Inclusive Homes and Communities
- Safety, Rights and Justice
- Personal and Community Support
- Education and Learning
- Health and Wellbeing
- Community Attitudes.
Some actions have been refined while others have been removed and replaced by more meaningful actions that more closely align to the Outcome Areas. We have also responded to identified gaps in the Outcome Areas of Safety, Rights and Justice and Health and Wellbeing.
There are now 34 Inclusive SA actions for State Government agencies and local councils to consider as part of their individual Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) reviews.
This interim review aims to support our transition to the new Australia’s Disability Strategy and set the foundation for the next iteration of Inclusive SA beyond 2023.
