Disability Service Plan
The Department of Energy and Public Works (EPW) new three-year Disability Service Plan 2022-2025 (PDF, 416.17 KB)(DSP) reflects our commitment to the objectives of Queensland's Disability Plan 2022-2027 (QDP) and Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021-2031 (ADS).
In line with QDP and ADP principles, development of our new three-year Disability Service Plan 2022-2025 has actively involved people with disability, and EPW’s first Disability Inclusion Commitment was introduced through these consultations.

Our Disability Inclusion Commitment
Inclusion = A stronger EPW. Together.
We are building a sustainable future for all Queenslanders, including people with disability, with a culture based on choice, participation, overcoming barriers and realising everyone’s potential.
We commit to being a workplace whose practices, service delivery and staff are inclusive and whose actions respect, protect and promote human rights in all we do.
We commit to including people with disability, their carers and communities, and to understanding their opportunities and challenges.
We commit to designing and managing our Power, Build, Buy services and project in ways that consider the inclusion of all people.
We commit to acting inclusively, to collaborate with courage, and to ensure all our unique voices are heard.
Inclusion makes us stronger – together, for Queensland
A word from our Disability Champion
Creating a more inclusive workplace and removing barriers to employment will improve the design and delivery of our services. The pandemic made us rethink how we do what we do and opened us up to new ways of thinking. This flexible, pragmatic approach needs to extend across our workplaces so that we are tapping the broadest talent pool possible and optimising the value that staff with disability bring to EPW. Our Disability Inclusion Commitment describes how we can be a stronger agency, the challenge is now for us to act.
