Establishing a Standing Review for the National Disability Strategy in NSW - Submission to the NSW Ageing and Disability Commission
This submission is made by Dr Nicola Fortune on behalf of investigators within the Centre of Research Excellence in Disability and Health (CRE-DH) funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council.
In responding to the questions set out in the position paper, we draw on our collective knowledge and research expertise in relation to health and wellbeing inequalities experienced by people with disability, and particularly on our recent experience with:
- Developing the Disability and Wellbeing Monitoring Framework and Indicators, with input from people with lived experience of disability; and
- Organising, in partnership with the Australian Human Rights Commission, a Zoom webinar as part of consultations for the next National Disability Strategy.
Monitoring implementation of and outcomes related to the National Disability Strategy is essential for ensuring that the Strategy is effective in improving the lives of people with disability in NSW and achieving a fair and inclusive society in which people with disability can fulfil their potential as equal citizens. We congratulate the ADC for undertaking this important work.
