Access & Inclusion
The Access and Inclusion Strategy sets out the Council’s commitment to making the City a welcoming and inclusive place for all people to enjoy.
The Strategy aims to complement the directions of South Australian and Australian Government policy and help Council move toward a best practice model for access and inclusion planning, with a particular focus on better outcomes for people with disability. It provides a strategic framework that will guide Council staff and partners in the development of key actions within each program area (department) of Council through annual planning.
