Central Coast Council is calling for community members who live with a disability, family members or carers of someone living with a disability and people who work in the disability sector to submit an Expression of Interest to join its Access and Inclusion Reference Group.

The Reference Group assists Council in implementing its Disability Inclusion Action Plan which sets out the actions Council will deliver to enable people with disabilities to better access mainstream services, facilities, information and support to be fully included and able to participate in community life. 

Council's Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan said this Reference Group will have an additional role.

"The current Action Plan is in its final year, so the Reference Group will have the important task of helping us develop our new Disability Inclusion Action Plan which will help shape access and inclusion in our community from 2021-2025," Ms Vaughan said.

Mayor Lisa Matthews urged people with a lived experience of disability to get involved.

"To be a truly responsive and inclusive community, our Coast needs to hear the voices of people who live with disabilities and understand the barriers they experience to full community participation," Mayor Matthews said.

Submissions are now open and close 5pm Thursday 23 July 2020.
