Disability Strategy

Community engagement for this project has now concluded.

Following on from previous discussions the draft Disability Strategy 2014 - 2018 has been developed and outlines seven key focus areas which will help council become more disability friendly.

These seven priority areas, known as “7 Big Ideas” were identified by people with a disability, their carers and disability organisations and are as follows:
  1. Give better access to community facilities that are run by Council;
  2. People with a disability will be able to “have your say” about Council decisions
  3. Council information is easier to read, get and understand;
  4. Council will do more to include people with a disability to be able to join in with the community;
  5. The Access Sub Committee and Council encourages shops and businesses to be disability friendly;
  6. Council advocates to State and Federal Government, developers,businesses and community; and
  7. Council is a disability friendly place to work and volunteer.

To find out more and have your say, have a look at the 7 Big Ideas and make a submission by clicking on the tab below.
