Consultation has concluded.

Read the consultation outcomes report here. The final Disability Inclusion Action Plan will be reported to Council in December 2022 for adoption.

People with a disability often face many barriers preventing them from participating fully in community life. 

Randwick Council is developing a new Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) 2022 -26, which builds on the strengths of the Council's existing work in the community, and sets out the actions and priorities for maintaining and improving access and inclusion for people with a disability over the next four years. 

The DIAP identifies four key focus areas:

  • Inclusive attitudes and behaviours: The attitudes and behaviours of the general community towards people with disability continue to be a significant barrier to their sense of inclusion.
  • Liveable communities: People with disability want to feel part of the community and have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in community life. 
  • Employment: Meaningful employment and all the associated benefits of income, skills recognition, social interaction, and feelings of self-worth remain an important goal for most people. 
  • Engagement and systems: Early consideration of people’s needs can make a huge difference to how people can engage with us, or are empowered to successfully navigate systems and pathways. 

The DIAP has been developed in partnership with Waverley Council, recognising that residents access services and facilities beyond LGA borders. Between October 2021 and February 2022, Randwick Council and Waverley Council consulted with the community to help develop a our Disability Inclusion Action Plans.

As a result of the consultation and focus areas, we have now drafted the Randwick Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2022-2026.
