The Disability Framework for Action 2005-2010 was a first step in directing Tasmanian
Government action to:
1. Understand, recognise and remove barriers to equitable access for people with disability; and
2. Achieve a vision of a fully inclusive society in which people with disability are valued and respected as equal members of the community.

Framework Objectives:
The DFA 2005 - 2010 was intended to be used by Government agencies to better respond to the needs of people with disability. It had four priority outcomes:
1. Fostering human rights;
2. Providing access to high-quality services;
3. Increasing safeguards and advocacy; and
4. Working collaboratively.
