Background

There are about 23,000 people in our community living with a disability. This means Canterbury-Bankstown has a high percentage of people needing support, compared to greater Sydney.

Support can include reducing physical, communication and social barriers, as well as attitudes and stigmas attached to people living with a disability.

Our plan challenges these barriers so that everyone in our community, regardless of disability, can live more freely and equally in Canterbury-Bankstown.

Join us in making this happen by letting us know your feedback.

Discussion

This Plan

The Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2022-26 will guide CBCity to become a more inclusive and accessible City. Aligned with our Community Strategic Plan, it will address the needs and barriers of people living with disability in CBCity.

We are seeking your input on four key focus areas:

  1. Attitudes and Behaviours – Community attitudes and behaviours towards people with disability;
  2. Liveable Communities – How people living with disability live and get around in our community;
  3. Employment – Quality employment and jobs for people with disability; and
  4. Systems and Processes – How people living with disability access support and services they need to live meaningful lives.

Your feedback will shape how we address the barriers, and will help create opportunities for people with disability to live in a more accessible and inclusive community over the next four years.
