Not-for-profit training and employment services provider, VERTO, has welcomed the NSW Government’s Disability Inclusion Plan 2021-2025, recognising it as an important step for improving the lives of people with disability in NSW.
“This plan provides a blueprint for increasing the social and economic participation of people with disability across NSW,” VERTO Chief Executive Officer, Ron Maxwell, said.
“It is great to see the NSW Government setting out a clear direction for progress over the next four years, with a key focus on access and inclusion.
“I hope it helps more businesses recognise the diversity of disability and realise that there is a large pool of potential employees amongst this sector of society.”
Under the NSW Disability Inclusion Plan, all public sector agencies and local councils are required to develop action plans to drive positive change in their communities.
Key deliverables under the Disability Inclusion Plan 2021-2025 include:
- Enhancing services for people with disability through More Jobs More Care

- Increasing the availability and accessibility of transport options for people with disability, including for those living in regional and rural areas.
