The Yarra Ranges Council (YRC) is looking for feedback on how it can make Yarra Ranges more accessible, equitable and inclusive for local residents.
In particular, the council is looking to hear from community members with disability, long-term health conditions and/or chronic illness, as well as unpaid carers and service providers to help inform our next Access, Equity and Inclusion Strategy (Disability Action Plan).
With almost one in five residents identifying as having a disability and almost 15 per cent of people providing unpaid care, it’s crucial that YRC hears about how accessible residents find infrastructure, facilities, communications and services in the Yarra Ranges.
People can provide input online at shaping.yarraranges.vic.gov.au/access-equity-and-inclusion-strategy?
For other ways to provide input, give YRC a call on 1300 368 333.
Hard copy surveys will also be available at any of YRC’s Community Links or at libraries in the Yarra Ranges later this week.
