Access and Inclusion
Disability Inclusion Action Plan for Forbes
Forbes Shire Council is developing a new Disability Inclusion Action Plan for Forbes.
The purpose of the Disability Inclusion Action Plan is to outline the actions Council will take to remove barriers and improve access for people with disability so they can participate in all areas of community life.
Council's existing plan expired in 2022.
Between March and August 2023 Council will undertake community consultation to find out what priorities for the DIAP should be and what Council can do to make life easier for people with disabilities in Forbes.
The consultation will be guided by a working group made up of community members and members of council with a lived experience of disability, or those working in the disability sector.
During the consultation you will be able to:
• Complete the survey as either a community member or person working in the disability sector.
All of the information collected during the consultation will be used to inform the development of the new Disability Inclusion Action Plan.
