Disability Inclusion Action Plan

The Environment and Heritage Portfolio Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2015-2019 (PDF 412KB) (DOC 154KB) has been developed. It is aligned to the principles underpinning the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities which acknowledges that people with disability have the same human rights as those without disability.

The Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) aims to improve the delivery of accessible and inclusive services, facilities and employment by all of the Environment and Heritage portfolio, including the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH).

Each quarter the DIAP steering committee will meet to share and report on progress in implementing the actions.

The structure of the plan is consistent with The Department of Family and Community Service (FACS) NSW Disability Inclusion Action Planning Guidelines and meets the requirements for NSW Government agencies under the Disability Inclusion Act (DIA) 2014.

Agencies across the Environment and Heritage portfolio worked in partnership with the Australian Network on Disability to prepare the plan. The Plan is our commitment to accessibility and inclusion for all.

If you require a version of the Disability Action Plan in a suitable format a free copy can be obtained by contacting OEH.
