Accessible Island is Tasmania’s third Disability Framework for Action (DFA) and has a four year coverage from 2018 to 2021. The DFA is a whole-of-government approach to policy and planning, service delivery and evaluation that seeks to remove barriers and enable people with disability to enjoy the same rights and opportunities as other Tasmanians.
Each Government agency is required, as part of its strategic and business planning, to prepare a Disability Action Plan (DAP) 2018-2021 that documents the way in which the commitments specified in Accessible Island will be met. In the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPAC), the Plan is named the Accessibility Action Plan (AAP).
All actions in the Plan align with the outcomes in Accessible Island, which in turn aligns with the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 (NDS).
