The City of Belmont is committed to ensuring that its community is accessible and inclusive for all residents, including those with disabilities, their families and carers.
As such, the City of Belmont has established a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2012-2017, a Disability Access and Inclusion Focus Group and an Access and Inclusion Map.
Disability Access and Inclusion Focus Group
The general purpose of the Disability Access and Inclusion Focus Group (DAIFG) is:
- To provide a forum and opportunity for community members to be able to provide recommendations and feedback with regard to the implementation of the City of Belmont Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP), through the ongoing monitoring and review of the DAIP.
- For the City to provide information on the progress of the DAIP implementation process and to keep community members updated about new initiatives to improve accessibility and inclusivity across the City of Belmont.
- To focus primarily on issues which the Council has an ability (financially and legislatively) to address rather than issues which are the responsibility of Commonwealth or State Government Departments, the non-Government sector or other community groups. The Disability Access and Inclusion Focus Group, may however, provide information and advice on such issues if it considers the City has a role to play, as an advocate, partner or supporter, in improving access and inclusion in other sectors.
The DAIFG meetings are held monthly at the City of Belmont, for more information about this group please contact the City's Seniors and Disability Engagement Officer on 9477 7149.
Access and Inclusion map
To make the City as accessible as possible for all members of the community, an Access and Mobility Map has been created. The map provides access mobility information about high demand areas within the City of Belmont.
If you have come across any access or inclusion barriers within our community, or if you require more information about services offered, please contact the City's Seniors and Disability Engagement Officer on 9477 7149.
