Griffith's Disability Inclusion Access

Griffith City Council adopted the Disability Inclusion Access Plan in July 2017.

The Disability Inclusion Action Plan demonstrates Council’s commitment to people with a disability on improving access to services, facilities and jobs and is also designed to change perceptions about people with a disability.

Griffith City Council’s Plan isclosely aligned with the Community Strategic Plan ‘guiding griffith 2040’ and includes:

· attitudes and behaviours - breaking down the barriers for a more inclusive community

· liveable communities - how we get around and access the physical environment

· employment - opportunities within Council and the community

· systems and processes - making it easy to find information and communicate with us.
