Creating a community for all abilities

We Asked — You Said — We Did is our way of showing how your feedback contributes to our decisions. Check out how you helped us create a community for people with all abilities.

We asked

In March 2018, we asked the community about ways to enhance community inclusion for people with a disability, and what actions could be taken to show leadership, lead planning and undertake advocacy on disability issues.

We wanted to know what the community thought access for all abilities might look like into the future.

You said

You told us that it is important to create strong social, employment and support networks.

You also said that educating the community on disability awareness is important in helping people with a disability to feel valued as members of the Glen Eira community.

We did

We have now developed five initiatives to benefit the community. We have changed how we are supporting people with disability. Council’s A Community for All-Abilities Program aims to create an accessible and inclusive community where everyone participates.

Currently, five projects have been developed to create A Community for All-Abilities Program:

  • EmployAbility Glen Eira
  • GROW Glen Eira
  • Inclusive Communities
  • Inclusive Volunteering
  • Carers Support Services
