Access and Inclusion Policy

Council wants people with disability, their family and carers to be able to:

  • get to the places they want  
  • access services and get the information they need
  • feel safe and part of the community
  • participate in decision making, and
  • have opportunities to work, exercise, socialise and be creative.

The Moreland City Council's Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2016-20 outlines Council's vision for the full inclusion of people with disability in all aspects of life:

This plan outlines Council's role and commitment in removing barriers and increasing opportunities for people with a disability in Moreland.

It identifies principles to guide our work and key priority areas.

The plan includes objectives for improving access and inclusion in:

  • Accessible places and spaces
