Disability Inclusion Action Plan

Cessnock City Council's Draft Disability Inclusion Action Plan (the Plan) is now on exhibition.



The Plan will provide Council with a strategic framework for how it can play its part in removing barriers to ensure people with a disability have equal opportunity to participate and have inclusion in the community.

The Plan has a focus on:-

  • Liveable communities, including improvements to the physical environment
  • Positive community attitudes and the inclusion of people in the community
  • Equal access to services, facilities and community spaces
  • Encouraging employment opportunities for people with a disability
  • Accessible communication formats that support people who have a vision impairment, hearing loss, learning difficulties and/or co-ordination difficulties
