Aged Care & Disability Services
Enhancing our community for all community members to live, work and play
People with disability, their families and carers have the same rights as all people to access services and facilities in their community.
Since the adoption of the Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017 - 2021, our Shire has had some key achievements, including implementation of an Access and Equity Committee, Local Access Assistance Fund and Pedestrian and Mobility Action Plan.
Council’s planning is meaningfully based on the views, strengths, priorities and aspirations of our community. This plan(PDF, 1MB) includes a series of actions designed to actively address the barriers faced by people with disability.
The plan(PDF, 1MB) builds on our previous plans and outlines how we will continue to improve access to Council facilities and services, as well as advocating for improvements in our Shire.
