People with disability, their families and carers are invited to give their feedback on Upper Lachlan Shire Council’s Draft Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017-2020.
Upper Lachlan Shire Council General Manager John Bell said the Draft Plan seeks to create a more inclusive community for people of all abilities.
“The Draft Plan sets out Council’s actions and strategies over the next three years to enable people with disability to have greater access to our facilities, services and information so it is essential that we get it right,” Mr Bell said.
“Prior to developing the Draft Plan Council undertook a community survey to help determine the challenges and priorities for people with disability in the Shire.
“The Draft Plan will be on public exhibition from Monday, 24 April 2017.
“I would encourage all residents with disability, as well as their family members and carers to view the Draft Plan and attend their nearest Community Outreach Meeting.
“Feedback received via these meetings and during the public exhibition period will help inform the final Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017- 2020.”
