Accessibility

Richmond Valley Council is committed to the Richmond Valley being inclusive and accessible for people of all abilities.  The Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2023-2025 (DIAP), adopted at the 19 December 2023 Ordinary Meeting, guides Council’s planning and actions to promote accessibility in our community.

Our Disability Inclusion Action Plan

Council has developed the DIAP in line with requirements under the Disability Inclusion Act 2014, following extensive community consultation.

Council’s DIAP is based around the NSW State DIAP framework, with a focus on the following four key areas:

  • Attitudes and behaviours – encouraging positive attitudes towards inclusion within government organisations, as well as the wider community.
  • Liveable communities – ensuring all people, including those with disability, are able to exercise their rights, live, learn, work and play, feel safe, raise a family and grow old within their own community.
  • Employment – ensuring people with disability have the opportunity to gain, retain, contribute effectively and experience the positive self and social benefits of employment.
  • Systems and processes – ensuring people with disability are able to access information, systems, processes and services and supporting their right to exercise choice and control.
