Disability access and inclusion

Waverley’s Disability Inclusion Action Plan DIAP details the actions Waverley Council will take over the next four years to improve the way people with disability access services and participate in community life.

This is Council’s second DIAP since the introduction of the NSW Disability Inclusion Act in 2014 and builds on actions taken by Council over many years to improve accessibility and accessibility in Waverley.

The Regional framework, An Inclusive Community for Everyone, was developed with Randwick City Council in 2017. The framework establishes the focus areas and strategic direction for both Councils and these were confirmed through the 2021 -22 consultation.

Community consultation

To inform our actions, we spoke to a broad range of people from Waverley and Randwick, including people with a disability, their families, carers, service providers and advocacy groups. Find out what people told us.

Get involved

Council is committed to engaging with people with lived experience, carers, and allies, so we can plan for, and better meet, the needs of people with disability. Find out about our Access and Inclusion Advisory Panel.

The Panel helps Council to promote an inclusive community and enhance the inclusion and participation of people with disability in community life.
