Consultation and engagement

Why it’s important

Engagement helps us better understand what is important to people with disability, how decisions are made, and what influences those decisions.

DCJ is committed to ensuring that we consult effectively with people with disability. Our Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) is designed for ongoing consultation with staff and the community.

We will create pathways so that people with disability, and those who support or care for them, can have their voices heard in the clearest way by the people who can act on their concerns.

How we’ll do it

The DIAP has an overall consultation strategy. This will ensure that consultations are well managed, and they are appropriately targeted to give meaningful input and review. These will be conducted by:

  • building consultation partnerships with disability peak organisations, disability advocacy groups, service providers and other stakeholders.
  • Have Your Say online surveys
  • consultation workshops
  • emails to

Each DIAP project is required to have consultation built into its project design. By involving people with a disability, we can empower and support them to shape and influence their own lives and the services they access. When we effectively engage with them we are building relationships and trust, and receive insights that can help drive improvement in people’s lives.

All projects which impact DCJ staff with disability are required to consult with our strong and active Disability Employee Network (DCJ DEN).
