Access and Equity Reports
Access and equity reflects the principle that all Australians should be able to access government programs and services equitably, regardless of their cultural, linguistic or religious backgrounds. The Australian Governmentʼs Access and Equity Strategy and Framework provides agencies with a key tool for building cultural diversity considerations into the core processes of government service delivery. Through the framework, service delivery principles about cultural diversity should be integrated into the strategic planning, policy development, budget and reporting processes of government service delivery. The strategy and framework apply to all government-funded services, irrespective of whether they are delivered by government agencies, community organisations or commercial enterprises. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship is currently responsible for coordinating the whole-of-government reporting process and publication of the report. The Access and Equity Reports feature examples of how government agencies respond to the needs of Australia's multicultural society. The Access and Equity in Government Services Report 2008–10 was tabled in parliament on 15 June 2011. 2008–10 2006–08 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 (487KB PDF file)
