Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021–2031 (the Strategy) is a plan to make life better for people with disability. The Strategy is supported by an outcomes framework that shows what needs to be tracked to know if things are improving for people with disability.  

Each year, this report series will look at what has changed for people with disability. This includes looking at what is happening for people with disability in key areas such as healthcare, housing, education and employment, and what is changing over time.

Other information about outcomes for people with disability

In addition to reporting on progress under Australia’s Disability Strategy, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare publishes other authoritative reports about people with disability and their experiences.

These reports can be accessed through the main AIHW disability topic page.

Information can also be found on Australia's Disability Strategy Hub.
