Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2021-2025

Our Disability Inclusion Action Plan guides Council's planning and actions up to 2025. The plan was developed with the community to identify and break down barriers for those with disability living and working in Lake Macquarie.

The Plan covers the following four focus areas:

  • positive community attitudes and behaviours
  • liveable communities, including improvements to the physical environment
  • employment opportunities
  • accessible information and support services.

The Disability Inclusion Action Plan is available in the following formats:
