Disability Inclusion Action Plan

Consultation has concluded

The Shoalhaven City Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017-2020 demonstrates Council’s commitment to
building an inclusive community to ensure that people with disability enjoy the same right to live their lives as they choose, and enjoy the same opportunities and benefits of living and working in the Shoalhaven.

The plan has been developed in consultation with people with disability, their supporters and services, and provides a four-year framework for improving access and inclusion across the Shoalhaven Local Government Area and to Council services.

The plan outlines the steps Council aims to take over the next four years to make services, systems and processes more inclusive, and how people with disability will provide ongoing input into Council’s progress.

The plan also describes how Council will work in partnership with the community, local businesses and other levels of government to remove barriers to access and participation faced by persons with disability, therein bringing social and economic gains to people with disability and to the broader community.
