Access and Inclusion
All Stonnington residents should enjoy wellbeing, dignity and independence and we’re committed to helping those with a disability and their carers and families. This commitment is outlined in Council's Access and Inclusion Plan 2014-2017.
This Plan brings together the successes of work undertaken through previous disability specific plans and links with other related corporate plans and strategies. Council believes in a ‘whole of Council’ approach to the development of this Plan by encouraging full engagement with all Councillors and officers.
The purpose of the Plan is to continue to facilitate and provide an accessible range of community services and facilities in partnership with the community and other agencies to promote wellbeing, safety, social independence and inclusion in the community.
