Progress reporting

TMR is required to report on our progress to implement the Disability Services Plan 2022–2025 as it aligns to the state disability plan commitments from the 4 key priority outcomes: our people, our community, our services and our places. To make sure TMR's Disability Services Plan is progressing and delivering improved outcomes for people with disability, we will be tracking progress throughout the life of the plan.

Under Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021–2031, we are also required to provide a progress implementation report against the Targeted Action Plans in achieving outcomes in specific areas of Australia's Disability Strategy. Information from the Targeted Action Plans is collated by the Department of Seniors, Disability Services and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships into a whole of government response on the implementation of the Targeted Action Plans in Queensland, which is communicated to the federal government.
