Visit DSS Engage to take part and to find accessible resources to help. The consultation is open until Friday 8 July 2022.

Organisations representing hundreds of thousands of people with disability across Australia are calling on political parties to commit to establishing a COVID Recovery Plan for people with disability. The groups want the incoming Australian Government to urgently implement a plan to address the fact that people with disability are being left in lockdown – while the COVID-19 virus is left to surge in the community.
People with disability need significant support to stay safe with so much COVID-19 in the community, so a comprehensive Recovery Plan must be developed with people with disability, their advocates, supporters and representative organisations.
