In April 2017 Disabled People’s Organisations Australia (DPO Australia) welcomed the opportunity to provide a submission to the Senate Community Affairs References Committee inquiry into the delivery of outcomes under the National Disability Strategy 2010-2010 (NDS) to build inclusive and accessible communities. The NDS is the principal national strategic plan, agreed by all Australian governments, to implement the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).  DPO Australia believe that The NDS is critical to the realisation of the human rights of people with disability in Australia. Copyright DPO Australia 2017.
