People with disability

Council is committed to making Waverley inclusive and accessible for people with disabilities and acknowledges that good access benefits all the community.

How Council supports people with a disability

Disability statistics

The 2011 ABS census records 1,761 people or 2.8% of the population in Waverley reporting a need for help in their day-to-day lives due to disability. 4,648 Carers or 8.7 % of the Waverley population reported they provide unpaid assistance to a person with a disability, long term illness or old age.
