Disability Access and Inclusion in Shellharbour

The current Disability Access and Inclusion Plan: An Inclusive City – 2017-22 was established in 2017 In partnership with the Disability Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee and the community of Shellharbour. Since creating the current plan Shellharbour has seen many wins for the community and particularly people whose lives are directly impacted by the goals of the plan.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Short Stories Project "Not all Disabilities are Visible".
  • Mobi Matting made available at Shellharbour North Beach.
  • Beach Wheelchairs available from Shellharbour North Beach and Warilla Beach.
  • All public accessible toilets were fitted with a Master Locksmith Access Key (MLAK) and listed on the National Public Toilet Map (NPTM).
  • All new or renewed playgrounds now include at least one inclusive element.
  • RECHARGE Points (for mobility scooters) are now available at the Civic Centre and Warilla Library.
  • Increasingly considering Access and Inclusion in Council's plans, policies and other documents.
