Darebin's Disability Access and Inclusion Plan


Seeking your feedback about disability access and inclusion in Darebin.

Tell us your ideas by completing the survey.


What is this for?

It is time for Darebin’s next Disability Action Plan.

This plan helps Council make our services, events and facilities more accessible and inclusive.

It helps us meet the needs of people with a disability.


In this plan "access" means everyone in the community can get to, enter and use places and services in Darebin.

In this plan "inclusion" means everyone being respected and valued as part of the Darebin community.


What is a Disability Action Plan?

Local governments are required to develop a Disability Action Plan under the Disability Act 2006 (Vic). We call it the Darebin Access and Inclusion Plan.


The purpose of the plan is to:

  • reduce barriers to people with a disability accessing goods, services and facilities;
  • reduce barriers to people with a disability getting and keeping employment;
  • promote inclusion and participation in the community of people with a disability; and
  • achieve changes in attitudes and practices towards people with a disability, and stop discrimination against people with a disability.


The current Darebin Access and Inclusion Plan 2015 – 2019 is coming to an end.


What is next?

Council is working with a community group to prepare for the next Darebin Access and Inclusion Plan.

We are seeking feedback from community over December and January.

Consultation will close on 2 February.

We will then review what the community has told us, and create goals to make Darebin more accessible and inclusive.

Council staff will make an action plan to help Council reach these goals.

We will keep you updated about the progress of this work on this page.

I have only lived in the City of Darebin for a short time so feel I unable to offer substantial feedback at this time. I am impressed by the access desks at libraries and the adoption of the changing places initiative. I like the buses to run after 9pm and Northcote to be made more accessibility friendly

I work within Darebin and have found the inclusion and access for people with disabilities is improving. I work for a company that employs people with disabilities and it makes my day seeing them and how happy they are at work. It helps with feelings of isolation and they become part of the team and community. Maybe providing better services i.e. transport more frequent buses etc. would be beneficial to the community and for people with disabilities. Also providing free groups that is accessible would be also beneficial. For example gardening, cooking and sport groups.
