It is essential that people living with disability are able to actively participate in decisions that affect their lives. It is JFA Purple Orange’s position that Commonwealth, state and territory, and local governments should engage in co-design with people living with disability and other key stakeholders whenever they develop a policy or instrument that will have a significant impact on the lives of people living with disability. In this way, people living with disability can support governments as valuable partners in policy, drawing on their skills, insight, ideas and lived experience of disability.
We recommend that The South Australian Government should amend sections 6 and 9 of the draft Disability Inclusion Regulations to replace the requirement for consultation with key stakeholders with a requirement to undertake a co-design process with people living with disability, their families and carers, and persons or bodies representing the interests of people living with disability, to develop both the State Disability Inclusion Plan and the State authority disability access and inclusion plans.
