The National Disability Data Asset is an exciting new national initiative for all Australians. Australian, state and territory governments are working with the disability community on the National Disability Data Asset. The disability data asset will bring together de-identified information from different government agencies about Australians with disability and without disability. This will help us to better understand the experiences of people with disability. The asset will give us more information about programs and services. This will help us to better support people with disability, their carers and the community.

These videos feature Dr Ben Gauntlett in his capacity as Disability Discrimination Commissioner from 2019-2023 and Belinda Drew in her former capacity as CEO of Community Services Industry Australia.
We will use the National Disability Data Asset to:
- give a more complete picture of the programs and services people with disability use
- share information about how we can improve opportunities and outcomes for people with disability
- help governments improve supports and services for people with disability
- improve how we report on outcomes for people with disability under Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021-2031.
