The Disability Strategy for Jersey sets out the proposed priorities and actions to help ensure the key outcome of the strategy: that people living with disability enjoy a good quality of life.
Careful consideration has been given to ensuring that the strategy will deliver what people want. Extensive research and engagement has been carried out, informing its development, to help understand the views and needs of disabled Islanders.
The strategy has been developed in partnership with government, voluntary and community organisations and the business community.
Priorities and action plans
The strategy is grouped into five priorities:
Priority 1: have support to communicate and access information
Priority 2: have greater access to the Island
Priority 3: have good health and wellbeing
Priority 4: have access to education, employment and enriching activities
Priority 5: have equal rights and experience equality
Each of these priorities has an associated action plan, detailing the actions the Island needs to carry out in order to bring about change.
Delivering the strategy and measuring success
A Disability Strategy Delivery Group has been set up. This group will be responsible for making sure every action is carried out, to plan when this will happen and identify the resources required to achieve it. The group will also identify measures to monitor the impact and long-term success of the strategy.
