almost 4 years ago

Help make Lake Macquarie a great place to live for all

We can all play a part in making it easier for people with disability to live, work and visit our City. To make this a reality, Lake Macquarie City Council is developing a Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017-2021 that will guide our planning and the actions Council takes now and in the future.

Council’s Acting Manager Community Planning, Andrew Bryant, said Council is committed to being an inclusive and accessible City for people with disability.

“This action plan, developed with the community, will help to identify and break down barriers for those with disability living and working in Lake Macquarie City,” Mr Bryant said.

“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:

•attitudes and behaviours;

•liveable communities;

•employment; and

•systems and processes.

Do you have a disability or are you a carer or service provider? Are you passionate about breaking down barriers for those with disability?

Council wants you to get involved in the conversation to help build a more inclusive and accessible Lake Macquarie City.

Have your say by taking a short survey and adding to our ideas board before Friday 30 September 2016.
