Disability inclusion and access

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

Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017-2021

The purpose of Council's Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017 - 2021 (DIAP) is to position access and inclusion at the centre of Council business. The DIAP has a vital role in ensuring access and inclusion are fundamental considerations in how we create liveable communities, support access to meaningful employment, provide information and services and promote positive community attitudes and behaviour.

The DIAP builds on work already underway to increase access and inclusion. It spans all areas of Council, building capacity in order to make Council, and ultimately the Coffs Harbour area, a welcoming place for all people. The DIAP supports the larger reform of the disability sector through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) which aims to enhance positive change in the lives of people with a disability.

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