2024/25 ACT Government Budget

Published on February 7, 2024

Joint submission 

ACT Disabled Peoples Organisations set out shared priorities for the 2024/25 ACT Government Budget 

Issued by: Advocacy for Inclusion, ACT Down Syndrome, Women with Disabilities ACT, and Endorsed by Mental Health Community Coalition ACT 

Disabled Peoples Organisations (DPO’s) and Peak bodies have agreed on some shared priorities and expectations for the coming ACT Budget. 

We highlighted and affirmed the importance of strategies that will guide disability policy in the ACT and ensuring these were backed by appropriate investments as well as responses that address unmet need, emerging gaps, and the requirements for sustained investment to address the findings of the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse and Neglect of People with Disability as well as the NDIS Review Report.   

These represent our headline priorities for 2024/25 but they should be read in tandem with our organisational asks as well as more detailed individual policy submissions where references, including a submission from Women with Disabilities ACT and last year’s detailed Budget package from AFI, which seeks detailed investments across portfolio areas.  We also refer readers to our shared policy statement of expectations for the ACT Government response to the Royal Commission.
