Between October 2016 and March 2017 Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Alastair McEwin conducted a national consultation to help guide his priorities and seek input from the disability community on how he can most effectively work to advance the rights of people with a disability. 

The Disability Discrimination Commissioner met with over 1000 people in capital cities and regional centres across Australia and received 85 written submissions.

The collection of stories, videos and infographics summarise what the Disability Discrimination Commissioner heard during his national consultations. The Disability Discrimination Commissioner has identified the following priorities for his term:

  • Employment
  • Education
  • Housing
  • The criminal justice system
  • Implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
  • Violence

A more detailed roadmap outlining actions for the Disability Discrimination Commissioner's term will be released later this year.
