Disability Action Plan 2012–16

There are one million Victorians with a significant disability which may include a range of neurological, physical, sensory and cognitive conditions. Three hundred and forty thousand Victorians have a profound or severe core activity limitation, requiring some form of daily assistance. 

Access to, and participation in, the justice system are considered central to the notion of citizenship. We developed the Justice Disability Action Plan (DAP) 2012–16 in recognition that all Victorians have a right to access the justice system. Its development was guided by our obligations under the Disability Act 2006, the National Disability Strategy, and the Victorian State Disability Plan. Above all this, however, we are committed to the Justice DAP because reducing barriers for people with a disability is essential to building an inclusive community.
