Access and Inclusion Plan 2020 - 2025

If you have a vision impairment and need information in large print or you come from a non-English speaking background and need an interpreter to help you communicate with services, access will be important for you.

If you have young children and use a pram or look after an aging family member who has difficulty walking up and down steps, access to buildings and facilities will be important for you.

People with disability and the whole community benefit from good access to buildings, facilities, events, services and information.

Barriers to access can affect how welcome and included we feel and the way we are able to engage and connect in the community.

What are we doing?

The City of Stirling is currently developing the Access and Inclusion Plan 2020–2025 and we would like feedback on your access needs to help inform the future direction and actions of the plan in order to implement positive change.

The City is committed to creating an even more welcoming and inclusive community that supports all people to fully participate in community life.

This includes ensuring the City’s buildings, facilities, events, services and information can be accessed by people of all abilities.

The development of the new Access and Inclusion Plan 2020–2025 will assist the City of Stirling to reduce or eliminate barriers and provide equity of access for everyone in our community.

What community engagement is happening and how to be involved?

We will be engaging with the community to find out what the key access and inclusion issues and needs are.

Why seek feedback from the community?

We encourage and value community feedback, and what you tell us will help inform the future direction and actions of the plan so that we can continue to implement positive change.

We want our community to:

  • Assist in identifying barriers experienced by people with disability in accessing buildings, facilities, events, services and information, and provide feedback on things we can do to reduce these.
  • Provide information to contribute to the development of a new five year Access and Inclusion Plan document, which reflects contemporary values and practices, enhancing inclusion of people with disability in the community.

Who do we want to hear from?

The City wants to hear from anyone who lives, works or visits the City with an experience of access and inclusion issues, including:

  • People with disability, their families and carers
  • People with access requirements
  • Businesses
  • Disability sector organisations operating within the City of Stirling
  • Anyone with an interest or knowledge of access and inclusion issues.
