Introducing the Shaping Inclusion online community

People with disability contribute a great deal to the rich fabric of our community. In 2021, around 7% of the residents of the City of PAE reported needing help in their day-to-day lives due to disability. Creating a community where opportunities and services are accessible to all community members, no matter their age and ability, is really important to us.

When it comes to access and inclusion, we are building a City that makes it easy for people with a disability to participate in all aspects of community life. We’ve worked with the community to create our Inclusive Communities plan, which details how we intend to provide an integrated, whole of Council approach to strengthen inclusion and access for everyone.

We’ve just launched ‘Shaping Inclusion’. This is a new online community for people who live with a disability, care for someone with a disability, or work for an organisation that supports people with disabilities. It helps us share information about opportunities and obstacles to improve inclusion across our community.

Shaping Inclusion is a new initiative for the City of PAE. We’re really looking forward to learning from you, our community, about how we can improve access and inclusion across our city.

The online community will allow our staff to unpack opportunities and issues with our lived experts and work together to make recommendations for a wide range of projects, products and services.

We are also just about to launch a new accessibility tool, which means that when you visit our website, you can adjust settings like spacing, contrast, text size and fonts. This means that online information can be delivered in a way that suits you.

We look forward to growing our online community
