My Department is committed to the whole of government approach to advancing the social inclusion of people with disabilities.

The allocation of funding for agency staff training, including disability awareness training, is a matter for the individual agencies under the aegis of my Department.

I have forwarded your question to the agencies for direct response to you. If you do not receive a reply within 10 working days please contact my office.
