Disability Services and Programs

City of Darwin's goal is to strive for efficient and non discriminatory work practices and equity in the provision of services and facilities such as inclusive recreational equipment and disabled car parking permits. Council facilitates a Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee which informs and advises Council on its responsibilities for people with a disability and also hosts the annual celebration of Disability Awareness Festival in collaboration with several other community organisations.

Community Access Plan 2012 - 2017

City of Darwin's Community Access Plan 2012 - 2017 describes actions to be undertaken to facilitate access and inclusion for all members of our community. The Plan will be instrumental in facilitating equitable and dignified access to Council services, communications and employment systems, and will enhance access in the broader community.
