ACT Government launches 10-year strategy and $4.9 million investment to address access to disability justice

The ACT Government has launched
its 10-year Disability Justice Strategy, which aims to address unequal access
to civil and criminal justice in the ACT.

The launch of the Disability Justice Strategy was accompanied by the First Action Plan, which includes $4.9 million budgeted over four years to
support implementation.

NDS commends the ACT Government
for the depth and breadth of the new strategy and its potential to make a real
difference in the way that the justice system and related processes respond to
the needs of people with disability in the ACT.
