Council has endorsed its DRAFT Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) to be placed on public exhibition for 28 days.
The purpose of a DIAP is to set out actions so that people with a disability can access general support and services and can participate fully in the community.
The DIAP guides Council in improving access and inclusion for people living with a disability throughout Leeton Shire.
Council adopted its first Disability Inclusion Action Plan in 2017. The Disability Inclusion Act 2014 requires councils to review the DIAP every four years in line with the Delivery Program.
Due to Covid-19, this timeline has been extended and councils must review their 2017 DIAP by 30 November 2022.
