An independent evaluation of the Commonwealth Disability Strategy was conducted by Erebus International during 2005-06.
The evaluation team is appreciative of the efforts of present and former staff of the Australian Government Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaCSIA) who facilitated various aspects of the evaluation. We appreciated the advice of the evaluation reference group members, including Mr Ben Wallace, Ms Maryanne Diamond, Ms Kath McDermott, and Ms Robyn Shannon. Feedback was welcomed and received in an open and frank manner in which representatives of peak bodies provided information to the evaluation team. Similarly, we have appreciated the participation and support of a wide range of people inside and outside the Australian Public Service who responded to our surveys, calls for submissions, and attended workshops. Our thanks also go to the Australian Association of the Deaf, who provided access to their TTY facilities.
