Disability Inclusion Action Plan 

A socially just community is one where everyone has fair and equal access to services that are essential to achieving and maintaining a decent lifestyle and it is important to acknowledge that some people need more support than others.

Social issues and strengths are identified in our People with Disabilities Social Profile Snapshot(PDF, 2MB).

We are committed to the principles of developing communities where everyone has fair and equal access to services and facilities that are essential to achieve and maintain a decent lifestyle.

Our commitment to people with disabilities is reflected in our Disability Inclusion Action Plan(PDF, 400KB) .

Access Advisory Committee

We are committed to supporting the active participation of people with disabilities and enhancing access to facilities and services within our community. Our Access Advisory Committee is comprised of carers, people with a disability and disability service providers from across our city.

International Day of People with a Disability

In 1992, the General Assembly proclaimed 3 December as the International Day of People with Disability.

Observance of the Day provides opportunities for participation by all stakeholders, Governments, the UN system, civil society and services of people with disabilities to focus on issues related to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in development.

Each year, we celebrate International Day of People with Disability by hosting an event on or around 3 December.  

For more information check back prior to December.
