Access and Equity Report 2006–08
This report provides a snapshot of access and equity issues and responses across Australian Government agencies. State, territory and local governments have also contributed to this report.
An annual Access and Equity Report on federal government agencies' performance against an access and equity framework has been tabled in both houses of parliament since 1993. This report covers a two-year period from 1 July 2006 to 30 June 2008. While some of the examples provided are ongoing programs, the focus is on improvements implemented during these two years.
Community feedback sought in preparing the last report highlighted the need to give attention to the delivery of programs and services to older Australians, women and Humanitarian Program entrants. This report includes a focus on the specific barriers experienced by these clients as well as what agencies are doing to address them.
For this reporting period, 83 Australian Government agencies have provided responses.
The report is available in full online version.
