Disability Inclusion Action Plan

Disability Inclusion Action Plan

We want a better future so we need a Plan. This Plan starts on 1 July 2017 and finishes on 30 June 2021. It is for everyone with a disability, their families, carers, friends and the whole community.

The community is all the people who live in Port Macquarie-Hastings area.

This Plan sets out actions that council will deliver in the next four years to help make life better for people with a disability, their families and carers.

People with a disability know what is most important to them. People, with a disability, their families, friends and carers helped us to write this Plan.

Sometimes people with a disability need extra help to live a full life and join in with other people. The council wants to make sure this Plan is making life better for people with a disability and their families and carers.

 We want you to know some of the projects we have done in the 1st and 2nd years of the plan, read our  1st  year report card1MB pdf(PDF, 1MB) and  2nd year report card2MB pdf(PDF, 2MB)
