Accessibility

We work towards building communities that are accessible and inclusive. We develop strategies that increase participation opportunities for people with disability.

The principle of universal access and inclusion is now a standard part of our planning and service provision.

The links below provide information about community programs that work towards making our city accessible and inclusive for people of all abilities. For further information about disability support services in the region, please visit the Disability Care Australia website or phone 1800 800 110.
