What Getting to work aims to do
The Victorian Government has committed to increasing the number of people with disability in the public sector.
Getting to work sets a target of 6% representation by 2020 and 12% by 2025. These targets apply to the Victorian Public Service and will expand to the broader public sector over time.
To achieve these targets, the plan has 21 actions over 3 focus areas:
- build awareness through access to information
- attract and recruit people with disability
- support employees with disability
With this plan, we aim to have the public sector reflect Victoria’s diversity and benefit from the lived experience of people with disability.
Enhancing the economic participation of people with disability is a priority of Absolutely everyone: state disability plan 2017–2020 (PDF, 3.3MB).
The development of Every Opportunity: Victorian economic participation plan for people with disability 2018–2020 (PDF, 1.24MB) is a key commitment in the state disability plan.
Every Opportunity seeks greater effort by government in the employment of people with disability, particularly through setting a target across the Victorian Public Service of 6% by 2020 and 12% by 2025.
Getting to work is the road map to help support achievement of the targets.
