Abstract: The State Disability Plan was introduced by the Victorian Labour government in 2002 to reform the disability services sector based on fundamental principles of human rights and social justice. Despite this the plan promotes a vision of social policy closely aligned to the neo-liberal view that social supports are burdensome to marketised economies and to the ultimate goals of delivering budgetary surpluses, as a result of which, individual human suffering and social exclusion is increasing.
