Together, these two documents describe the background to and thinking behind the whole-of-government, whole-of-community approach of the plan. They spell out the actions that will be taken to achieve the plan’s vision of:

An inclusive Victorian society that enables people with a disability, their families
and carers to fulfill their potential as equal citizens.

The two documents are a resource for everyone in Victoria: across public and private sectors, not-for-profit organisations, communities and individuals. They act as a guide to the concerted effort that will be needed inside and outside the Victorian Government if the plan is to be successful.

The Victorian state disability plan 2013–2016 articulates the government’s view to the future and gives a clear direction for the next four years. At the centre of the plan is the framework, which outlines the vision and principles of the plan, the long-term goals, shorter-term outcomes and four-year strategies that guide the two-yearly implementation plans. The plan describes how the Victorian Government will monitor progress and the results of their actions, allowing them to make adjustments if needed and enabling greater transparency and accountability.

The Victorian Government will continue to implement actions supporting the plan through to December 2016. They will report back on the plan’s progress to make sure that people with a disability, their families and carers are kept up-to-date about the changes the Government are making.
