The Minister announced the initiative at an “Unequal Cuts” Disability Wales seminar.
The Framework will detail the work to be undertaken across Welsh Government departments and with external partners to support Independent Living.
It will identify areas where action is needed and ensure that the many policies and strategies that already support Independent Living are brought together into a coherent delivery plan.
The Framework for Action on Independent Living will underpin the Welsh Government’s efforts under the Equality Act 2010 to advance disabled people’s equality of opportunity, eliminate discrimination and foster good relations.
Minister Jane Hutt said:
"I want to see that all citizens in Wales are respected and included as equal members of society, and that everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
"I am committed to supporting disabled people by promoting greater access to services and providing opportunities that will enable them to participate in, and contribute fully to, society."
Rhian Davies, Chief Executive of Disability Wales said:
"Our seminar heralds a major new Welsh Government initiative, one which Disability Wales has actively campaigned for over many years and which is aimed at disabled people having greater control over their lives and the necessary support to live independently in the community."
