Disability policy

In 2011 OEH updated its existing Disability Action Plan, which took effect in October 2009. The revision was initiated as part of a continuous improvement approach to planning, customer service and organisational capacity and aims to help achieve the outcomes for people with disabilities outlined in Goal 14 of NSW 2021: A plan to make NSW number one.

The Disability Action Plan 2011-12 (20120023dap1112.pdf; 143 KB) is aimed at improving accessibility to OEH services and programs, including environmental information and education, recreation and tourism, volunteering, grants and rebates, and licensing systems. The plan also addresses how OEH can improve its employment opportunities and work conditions for people with disabilities.

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

Access to parks and gardens

OEH is committed to enhancing access to many national parks, lookouts, picnic areas, tracks and camping grounds for people with a disability. Our webpage on wheelchair-friendly national parks and reserves contains information on accessibility to NSW national parks and reserves across the state for people with mobility impairments.
