Dubbo Regional Council (DRC) is calling for interested parties to put their name forward to join a newly formed Disability Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee.  

With a goal to develop positive community attitudes towards people with a disability, create a more liveable community and provide equal access to employment and appropriate services, Council invites residents wanting to be a part of this thinking to submit an Expression of Interest to take part in the committee.

The committee will review Council’s Disability Inclusion Action Plan when required, provide advice on potential solutions to issues raised in the action plan and encourage public consultation in initiatives designed to achieve the outcomes of the plan.

Dubbo Regional Council Mayor Mathew Dickerson encourages residents interested in taking part on the committee to put their names forward.

“Council considers inclusiveness at every step with our goal to ensure that all our services, outcomes and facilities along with those activities we provide are delivered inclusively.

“This committee will assist in helping us achieve that.”

The previous Disability Inclusion Advisory Panel collaborated to update the 2022-2025 Dubbo Regional Council Disability Inclusion Action Plan which was adopted by Council in July 2021.

They also created mobility maps for Dubbo and Wellington assisting people with disabilities to identify accessible features in both towns.

Expressions of Interest in joining the committee close at 5pm on Monday 6 February and can be submitted online via Council’s website.
