As part of this commitment, Council wishes to be a leader in implementing the principles of the National Disability Strategy and the NSW Disability Inclusion Act and takes its legislative obligations toward building a cohesive community seriously. The Council seeks to extensively involve the community in planning, implementing, and monitoring its DIAP. In implementing the Mid-Western Regional Council DIAP, Council wishes to extend the scope of disability inclusion beyond physical barriers to ensure that people with disability are included and able to participate within the community meaningfully. Developing the range of disability inclusion actioning involves reassessing how disability is interpreted within the community and ensuring all

people with disability are understood and included. Council understands that genuine inclusion is never achieved in isolation. Effective disability inclusion actioning involves identifying existing Council visions, goals, principles and objectives that directly align with Council’s DIAP. The sections below have been developed to inform, assess and continue our commitment to fully support the members of our community by reviewing the demographics of the local government area and existing Council policies for disability inclusion.
