The Disability Action Plan 2019–2023 (Action Plan) aims to deliver the eight outcomes in the New Zealand Disability Strategy 2016–2026 (Disability Strategy).
It is not a conventional Action Plan in that it does not consist of a series of work areas followed by lists of actions. Instead, it is a package of 25 cross-government work programmes that are underway or are being planned that have an explicit disability perspective. The Action Plan is on pages 8 to 11 of this document.
The Action Plan has been designed this way to bring together important programmes of work that agencies have committed to that relate to the outcomes in the Disability Strategy.
The Action Plan responds to the main issues identified by disabled people, the Disabled People’s Organisation (DPO) Coalition and government agencies working together. We expect most of the work programmes in the Action Plan to continue beyond 2023. New work programmes may be added to the Action Plan over its timeframe.
