The first Australian 1 in 4 Poll is seeking people to respond to a survey on social inclusion. The information will be used by the researchers - Deakin University and Scope - and by National Disablity Services (NDS) to influence government policy and inform future practice and research.

The Poll can be completed by:

  • people with disability; and
  • carers who are family members or who are paid. Carers can support a person with disability to complete the survey or can complete it themselves.

The 1 in 4 Poll is a national survey, to be conducted at regular intervals over the next 3 years. It takes its name from the fact that disability touches the lives of one in every four Australians - either directly or indirectly in the case of carers. It aims to provide a vehicle for people with disability to voice their opinions on current social issues.

The results may assist in building impetus for a National Disability Insurance Scheme and the implementation of the National Disability Strategy.
