The Victorian Government has released its new plan to increase the economic opportunities for people with disability.

Despite the state’s broader economic success, people with disability continue to face barriers and discrimination which leaves them significantly underrepresented in the workforce.

Every opportunity: Victorian economic participation plan for people with disability 2018-20 was launched by the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing, Martin Foley on 8 February.

The plan outlines 21 actions to improve the work, study and business opportunities for Victorians with disability, and to maximise the benefits of the NDIS.

It sets a target of six per cent employment of people with disability across all Victorian Government departments by 2020, and is backed by an investment of $2.6 million.
