South Australia's first State Disability Inclusion Plan 2019–2023.

Read time: 1 minute

Inclusive SA launched on 1 November 2019. It is the South Australian Government's first State Disability Inclusion Plan 2019–2023.

The plan brings State Government agencies and local councils together to reduce the barriers faced by people living with disability.

Inclusive SA sets out the priorities and actions for the next four years under the following themes:

  • inclusive communities for all
  • leadership and collaboration
  • accessible communities
  • learning and employment

The priorities and actions set out in Inclusive SA are the first steps to improving access and inclusion for people living with disability.

Disability Access and Inclusion Plans

Under the Disability Inclusion Act 2018 (SA), state authorities in South Australia are required to develop their own Disability Access and Inclusion Plans (DAIPs).

These are not due to be completed until October 2020.

The Department of Human Services is currently developing a toolkit. This will help state authorities develop and report on their DAIP, which will be available in early 2020.

Online accessibility

The intention of the State Disability Inclusion Plan (see Priority 8, Action 22) is to improve the online accessibility of State Government websites.

This includes the implementation of the South Australian Government Online Accessibility Policy and related guidelines.

The South Australian Government Online Accessibility Toolkit (accessibility.sa.gov.au) is a free publicly available resource.

The toolkit provides simple advice on how to build, maintain buy and sell accessible digital platforms.
