Cardinia Shire Council’s draft Disability Action Plan out for comment 

Published: 18 August 2021

Cardinia Shire Council’s draft Disability Action Plan is available for public comment on www.cardinia.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay 

The draft Disability Action Plan sets out what Council will do to make our community, services, programs and workplace more accessible to people with disability. 

The Disability Action Plan is based on four key principles in the Victorian Disability Act 2006: 

  • reducing barriers to people with a disability in accessing goods, services, and facilities 

  • reducing barriers to people with a disability in obtaining and maintaining employment 

  • promoting inclusion and participation of people with a disability in the community 

  • achieving tangible changes in attitudes and practices which discriminate against people with a disability 

The draft plan has been developed based on extensive feedback from the community as well as disability sector service providers, advocates and organisations gathered through online surveys, a series of online workshops and pop-up events held across the shire.
