People with disability, families, carers and service providers are invited to join the ACT Disability Health Strategy steering committee to help shape the future of health services for Canberrans with disability.

Minister for Health Rachel Stephen-Smith said the committee will play an instrumental role in planning for lifetime health services that meet the diverse needs of Canberrans with disability.

“The ACT Government is committed to ensuring Canberrans with disability can access quality health services where and when they need them, and we know this important work must be driven by those with lived experience.

“Whether you’re a person with disability, a carer or family member, community representative or industry sector stakeholder, ACT Health would value your insights and ideas about how we can improve health services for Canberrans with disability.

“Phase One of the Disability Health Strategy project was recently completed, with the development of a background paper and a stakeholder workshop and listening report.

“The Steering Committee will help guide the project through its next phase – development of the Strategy itself and its First Action Plan,” Minister Stephen-Smith said.
