Towards Equality Framework

a woman having her say

Reviewing comments on our new draft social justice framework – Towards Equality.


Towards Equality: Equity, Inclusion and Human Rights Framework 2019-2029 is Darebin City Council’s guiding framework to address barriers to equity and inclusion in the community.


Building on the former Equity and Inclusion Policy developed in 2012, the new draft framework will guide Council’s approach to addressing the various barriers to equity and inclusion experienced by Darebin’s citizens and stakeholders and seeks to strengthen their human rights. It goes above and beyond our legislated responsibilities to position Council at the forefront in tackling disadvantage, inequity and exclusion.


The consultation period on the Draft Summary and entire Draft Framework has now ended.


We are currently considering community feedback and responses to the following questions:

  • What does a fair city look and feel like to you?
  • Does the Framework Vision resonate with you and your community? What does it mean to you?
  • In considering the three goals of the Framework, what do they mean to your community/or the communities you work with?
  • What will it look like if Council applies these goals in our work?

After we have reviewed the feedback, Council will consider a final version of the Framework for endorsement mid-December 2019.
