What do we want to know and why?

We want to hear from the community about access and inclusion. Your feedback will be used to inform Livingstone Shire Council and help us find better ways to ensure the community is accessible by implementing inclusive policies, practices and services.

We want to know about your experiences, including what is working and not working in your community. We also want to hear about initiatives and models that we can use to make it easier for people to participate in community life.

What is an accessible community?

An accessible community is where everyone can use the public facilities including:

  • Getting into buildings
  • Using the footpaths safely
  • Enjoying parks and playgrounds
  • Accessing toilets and change rooms

An accessible community is also one where everybody can find information in a format that is useful to them.

What is an inclusive community?

An inclusive community is one where:

  • People feel valued and included
  • Everyone can take part in social events, sporting and cultural activities
  • People have opportunity to work or volunteer.

The Community Development and Engagement Team will collate responses and develop a report advising Council of the results and recommendations for enhancing or improving access and inclusion across the shire. This is in line with Livingstone Shire Council’s Inclusive Community Policy which confirms Council’s commitment and provides strategic direction to the ongoing development of Council and its community. The policy and accompanying procedure fulfills statutory requirements and aims to ensure universal commitment to strengthening and valuing diversity through inclusive, equitable and accessible services.
