Department of Premier and Cabinet, October 2010.
DiVine is the first online community written by and for people with a disability in Australia. It sets new standards for accessibility and inclusion. DiVine aims to inform, engage and entertain people with a disability. It is a vibrant community that encourages participation and a sense of belonging.
DiVine was developed by the Office for Disability in the Department of Planning and Community Development after extensive consultation with people with a disability, who now represent 20 per cent of all Victorians.
All articles on the DiVine website are written by people with a disability. Many contributions have come from the wider community. Visitors to the website can submit articles for possible publication, post comments or vote in online polls.
The extensive content across a range of topics demonstrates a high level of community engagement. The site harnesses the existing skills and knowledge of the community to share with others, as well as directly and indirectly assisting individuals with a disability to reach their potential.
DiVine also serves as a communication channel for the Victorian Government to publicise key projects and initiatives of interest to people with a disability. It provides links to existing online resources that provide disability and health information, as well as government sites frequently used by people with a disability. DiVine uses technology to help achieve a more consultative, participatory and transparent government, encouraging discussion and feedback about government initiatives.
