3 December: Launch of Community Access and Inclusion Plan  Printer Friendly


The Benalla Rural City Community Access and Inclusion Plan was launched yesterday at the Benalla Performing Arts and Convention Centre, coinciding with the International Day of People With a Disability.

The Plan is the result of extensive community consultation about how to include people of all abilities in every level of participation in civic and community life, reflecting the day’s theme of “Inclusion matters: Access and empowerment for people of all abilities”.

“This plan reinforces that we are all responsible to ensure that people with a disability, and their carers, have the same opportunities to participate in our community that we often take for granted,” said Mayor Cr Justin King at the launch.

“It puts in place strategies to help us eliminate barriers and improve access for people of all diverse abilities. This will improve access for the wider community. 

“It reinforces the Council’s commitment to building a safe and socially connected community that offers opportunities for all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

“Over the life of this plan, the disability sector will undergo significant reform directed by National and State Disability Strategies and the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

“The Council has an opportunity to lead by example and demonstrate that the best communities welcome everyone, regardless of age and ability.”

The launch included live music, an art display, an independent Living Centre mobile display and young people sharing their experiences of disability.
