Alpine Access and Inclusion Action Plan

Council is redeveloping its Access and Inclusion Action Plan, and wants to hear from community, businesses, people with disability, carers and families to ensure the plan is reflective of local needs.

About

Council’s updated Access and Inclusion Action Plan will aim for equitable and dignified access to services, facilities, communications and employment processes.

This is achieved by imbedding access and inclusion for people with disability in the Shire’s services, programs, activities, communication and employment opportunities.

This goal starts with understanding local needs and building a long-term strategy and framework.

We encourage residents, business owners and visitors to take part and help us identify how we can make the Shire more accessible for people with disability.

The Access and Inclusion Action Plan aims to reduce barriers to people with disability to access goods, services and facilities and gain and maintain employment.

The Plan will provide the community and staff with measurable outcomes to create greater inclusion and awareness for people with disability. 

It also aims to achieve clear changes in attitudes and practices which discriminate against people with disability.

To understand the unique challenges that face our local communities when it comes to access and inclusion for people with disability, we want to hear from you!

All community members are encouraged to complete a quick survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AlpineAccessInclusion

Survey closes Tuesday, 4 May 2021.
