Why is the Access and Inclusion Plan important?

At the 2016 Census, 7,849 people in the City reported needing help or assistance in one or more of the three core activity areas of self-care, mobility, and communication.

It is estimated that 20 per cent of the City’s population (about 44,000 residents) will experience a mental illness sometime in their lives, which will impact how they think, feel, and behave.

There are more than 50 group homes providing accommodation to people with disability in the City of Stirling and more than 30 disability service providers offering a range of services including personal care and respite.

These figures emphasise how important it is that we consider our residents of all abilities so they feel valued, heard, and engaged in the issues and decisions that matter to them.

Why should people have their say?

Community feedback will help inform the direction and actions of the Access and Inclusion Plan 2020-2025. Your ideas can help us better address the access and inclusion needs of the community as a whole, with the aim to addressing identified barriers within the community.

Who do you want to hear from?

This is particularly relevant for people with disability or access requirements, family, friends, carers, and disability service providers.  We want to hear from all people who live, work or recreate in the City of Stirling and businesses and organisations that have an interest in contributing to the City’s Access and Inclusion Plan.
