Council is committed to an inclusive community where residents have equal opportunities to engage with services, social experiences and surroundings.

Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2022-2026

The MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan sets out a vision for our community that is connected, sustainable and thriving. 

To achieve this vision, everyone needs to be able to participate and be included in our community. 

The Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) for Coffs Harbour sets out the strategies and actions that Council will take to provide access to Council information, services, events and facilities. This DIAP reflects community feedback from Council’s Disability Inclusion and Access Advisory Committee as well as the broader community.

The goal of Council’s DIAP is to help address those challenges and ensure access and inclusion are key considerations in how we create liveable communities, support meaningful employment and promote positive community attitudes and behaviour.

Council has formally adopted the Disability Inclusion Inclusion Action Plan 2022 - 2026 which aims to help provide equal access to local opportunities and choices in the Coffs Harbour area for people with disabilities, their carers and families. 

Council reports annually on its progress in implementing the Disability Inclusion Action Plan:
