People with a disability

What we do

We aim to make Sydney an inclusive and accessible city for everyone.

We endeavour to make the physical components of the city accessible and provide social and economic opportunities for people with a disability to enable full participation in city life. 

Our plan of action

The City of Sydney has a new Inclusion (Disability) Action Plan 2014–2017.

The new plan has been developed in consultation with the City’s Inclusion (Disability) Advisory Panel, building on the progress made from previous plans to improve inclusion and access across the City. The action plan sets a vision for a city where:

  • life is accessible and inclusive for everyone
  • all visitors are welcome
  • everyone can work and live
  • information is accessible
  • everyone can have a say.
The plan is available to download below in a variety of formats. Alternative formats are available on request.

Taking advice

In 2012 we called for expressions of interest from people who can provide the City with expert advice on improving inclusion for people with a disability.

We received 59 applications of an exceptionally high quality and sought independent advice from the chair of the Disability Council of NSW. The 10 members were selected for what their combined talents bring to the panel. More than half have direct experience with disability issues, either personally or through a caring and support role. The panel meets at least 5 times a year, which has been appointed for a 2-year term.
