Murray Access and Inclusion

The Shire is committed to ensuring that the community is accessible to and inclusive of people with disability, their families and carers. This is achieved through consultation with the Murray Aged, Access and Inclusion Group (MAAIG).

An accessible and inclusive community is one in which all Council functions, facilities and services (both in-house and contracted) are open, welcoming, available and accessible to people with disability, providing them with the same opportunities, rights and responsibilities as other people in the community.

Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2023-2028 (DAIP)

Our Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2023-2028 (DAIP) was finalised and endorsed by the Shire of Murray and Department of Communities in February 2023. The DAIP is required to focus on seven key outcomes as prescribed within the Disability Services Act (1993).
