Council’s updated Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) provides a blueprint to ensure information, services, and facilities are accessible to people with disability.
“I would like to thank Council’s Community Life Business Unit who undertook the review in consultation with people with disability, their families and carers, disability service providers and other stakeholders,” Mayor Dr Christina Curry said.
“This plan outlines the actions Council will take over the next four years to improve the way people with disability access services and participate in community life.”
All councils are required to develop a DIAP in accordance with the Disability Inclusion Act 2014.
Council’s DIAP provides a four-year roadmap to removing barriers and implementing inclusive principles, processes, systems, and practices.
The DIAP focus on four key areas:
- Building liveable communities
- Improving systems and processes
- Meaningful employment
- Positive attitudes and behaviours
