Disability Inclusion Action Plan

Consultation underway to develop a draft Disability Inclusion Action Plan

Upper Lachlan Shire Council embraces the inclusion of people with a disability in all aspects of community life and is committed to making Council’s workplace and service to the public inclusive for all people whilst creating a more inclusive and welcoming community for people with disabilities.

As required by the NSW Disability Inclusion Act 2014, Council is in the process of preparing a Draft Disability Inclusion Action Plan. The Plan will assist Council to effectively identify four focus areas and deliver actions that will help to create an inclusive community. The focus areas are:

1.     Attitudes and Behaviours

2.     Liveable Communities

3.     Employment, and

4      Systems and Processes.

To help prepare the Plan Council needs a better understanding of what is important and what are the challenges for the community and their families who have a disability or experience with people with a disability. Council is seeking community input and you can have your say by taking a short survey before Friday 20 January 2017.
