Access and Inclusion

Hornsby Shire Council is dedicated to equal access and inclusion for everybody. This includes participating in Council’s programs and events, accessing services and participating in community life.

If you would like to raise an issue that is impacting on your access or inclusion within the community, please contact Council’s Community Development Project Officer, Mark Powell on 9847 6996.

To find out more about the response from all levels of government see the National Disability Strategy 2010 - 2020.

Inclusion is about everyone understanding that people with disabilities have the right to be socially and economically a part of the community and independent in their own lives. It’s about removing barriers and increasing access. It’s about all of us.
