Our Accessibility Action Plan 2013 – 2017

The National Disability Insurance Agency was established by the Australian Government to implement the National Disability Insurance Scheme. The NDIA is working with the Commonwealth and state and territory governments to deliver the Scheme to ensure improved support for people with disability, their family and carers.

The Agency is committed to establishing and maintaining a diverse workforce at all levels. To meet the challenges of the 21st century, the NDIA must continuously strive for a workforce that reflects Australian society and promotes an environment that places high value on individual respect, dignity and professional growth. The Agency’s ability to attract, develop and retain a quality and diverse workforce is key to the Scheme’s success.

The creation of employment opportunities within the Agency will show leadership to other Australian employers to eliminate barriers to the employment of people with disability. Increasing access to employment opportunities is key to improving economic security and personal wellbeing for people with disability.

To achieve this, the Agency will encourage the participation and contribution of people with disability to inform policies and will work together with stakeholders to make the NDIA not just an employer of choice for employees with disability, but an exemplar employer in the Australian Public Service.
