Carers Victoria welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Victorian Government Discussion Paper and Companion Document for the Victorian State Disability Plan 2017–2020. These documents explore four key themes: active citizenship, rights and equality, economic participation and making the most of the NDIS.

Carers Victoria believes the Victorian State Disability Plan 2017–2020 is an opportunity for the Victorian Government to broaden its social justice and equality agenda to improve the rights, health, wellbeing and life chances of over 13 percent of Victorians who are carers, many of whom also make up a proportion of the 20 percent of the population with a disability.

Carers Victoria acknowledges the traditional owners of this land and pays respect to elders both past and present.
