The aim of the Disability Inclusion Action Plan is to outline precise strategies and actions that will help Council
achieve its inclusion goals over the next four years. This will allow people with disability to have better access to
the services, information and facilities offered by Council. The Plan takes a holistic approach and includes actions
for all areas of Council.
By implementing the actions in this Plan, not only will people with disability benefit, but older people, people
with acute or short-term injuries, and parents with young children will also benefit.
Therefore, this Plan is based on the broader guiding principles outlined in the United Nations Convention on
the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which includes:
- Full and effective participation and inclusion in society
- Equality of opportunity
- Respect for difference and acceptance of persons with disabilities as part of human diversity and humanity
- Principles of Universal Design
