Have Your Say on All Abilities Queensland

50th_disability_servicesDisability Services Queensland want to hear from more of us as they shape the state’s future for people with disability to ensure we arrive at an approach that will help people with disability to achieve their goals and that Queenslanders of all abilities can live the life they choose.

Disability Services Minister Coralee O’Rourke says her Department is now extending the consultation period by two weeks, giving people more time to be heard.

“More than 70 submissions had been received so far and I’m inviting more Queenslanders to play a part in shaping our future.”

The minister wants us to take part in a 10 minutes’ survey – ‘Towards an all abilities Queensland’ consultation survey.

“The shorter survey has been designed with five simple questions, making it even easier for people to contribute their ideas on how we can better include, value and empower people with disability.”

“We want a state that truly is for everyone, where people with disability have more opportunities to work, socialize, travel and participate in our communities.

With the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) now underway, the survey is designed to make sure people with disability not only receive support, but also live a meaningful and full life just like everyone else.
