Priorities for action: Human Rights Commission

Shaping our future: discussion on disability rights
Human Rights Commission, 6 April 2017
Between October 2016 and March 2017 Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Alastair McEwin conducted a national consultation to help guide his priorities and seek input from the disability community on how he can most effectively work to advance the rights of people with a disability ... The Disability Discrimination Commissioner has identified the following priorities for his term:
  • Employment
  • Education
  • Housing
  • The criminal justice system
  • Implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
  • Violence
A series of text transcripts, videos and infographics summarising what the Disability Discrimination Commissioner heard during his national consultations about each of these priorities is now available on the Human Rights Commission's website. A more detailed roadmap outlining actions for the Disability Discrimination Commissioner's term will be released later this year.
