Help us create a more inclusive and accessible city for people with disability

Help us create a more inclusive and accessible city for people with disability

Open

This consultation is open for contributions.

We’re developing our fifth inclusion (disability) action plan. We want to hear from people with disability, people with mental health conditions, and people with caring responsibilities about how we can create a more inclusive city.

Our vision is for an inclusive and accessible city, where people with disability have equitable opportunities to participate in social and cultural life, in meaningful employment and decision making processes.  An inclusive city is one where people with disability are viewed positively by the wider community and acknowledged and celebrated for their diverse contributions and experiences.

Why we’re developing this plan

We’ve developed consultation summary papers, including an easy read version to help explain why we’re developing this plan and what we want to hear from you.

Covid-19 response

We’re changing how we consult and connect with our communities in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We know our residents, workers and visitors are focused on social distancing and health and wellbeing, and many are experiencing economic stress.

While how we consult with you may look a little different, we still want to hear from you and provide plenty of opportunities to have your say on the projects and programs that affect you.
