As we enter the 2024-2025 financial year, significant disability reform will need to commence with the Australian Government as well as state and territory governments, implementing agreed recommendations from both reform processes.

However, this is no simple task, and it will take time and resources.
People with Disability Australia welcomes the opportunity to provide input into the appropriate terms of reference for a COVID-19 Royal Commission.
Disability Representative Organisations and other individuals and organisations supporting this submission welcome the opportunity to provide feedback on the Options Paper ‘Establishing a Disability Employment Centre of Excellence.’
