Disability Inclusion Act

The Act has two broad aims. The first aim is to set out how FACS will provide disability supports and services up until the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has been rolled out across the whole of NSW by mid-2018.  The second aim is to make sure that after moving to the NDIS, NSW continues to be a place where people with disability have access to mainstream services and are part of our community.

Development for All

The purpose of the aid program is to promote Australia’s national interests by contributing to sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction. Supporting this, the objective of Australia’s work in disability-inclusive development is to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities in developing countries.
