Accessibility Reference Group

The Accessibility Reference Group is made up of community members who are passionate about access and inclusion for people of all ages and abilities.

The community-based group aims to help the Council identify and respond to the access and inclusion needs of the community. They raise issues and concerns on behalf of the community and provide feedback on planning, policy and programs to ensure access and inclusion is considered across the Council’s objectives.

Through the Community Access and Inclusion Plan(PDF, 1MB) the Council has committed to creating an inclusive and accessible environment for people of all abilities.

We are committed to building a healthy, active, safe and socially connected community that offers opportunities for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to participate in community life. The Council aims to achieve tangible changes in attitudes and practices that may discriminate against a person in reference to the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.

The Council plays a vital role in advocating for a more inclusive community. Through its networks and strategic links, the Council can facilitate improved disability awareness and practical support for clubs, groups and traders to improve access and inclusion.
