The Youth Disability Advocacy Service or YDAS is running consultations for disabled young people to share your ideas about the Victorian State Disability Plan and the Disability Act.
The Victorian Government is developing the next State Disability Plan and your feedback will help ensure the needs of disabled young people are heard and represented.
The State Disability Plan will outline actions that the Victorian Government needs to do over the next 4 years to make Victoria safer, fairer and more accessible for disabled people.
The Victorian Government also wants to hear how the Disability Act 2006 can be made stronger to protect disabled people, support your needs and goals, and promote your rights.
