This consultation has now closed. Thank you for your feedback.

The strategy and action plan outlines how we will support people with a disability to live full and active lives.

We developed this strategy, along with our Active and Healthy Ageing Strategy, following an extensive community consultation in February and March 2018.

We spoke to our community at a number of workshops and pop-up sessions and heard from more than 20 Yarra-based disability support organisations. On top of this we received more than 250 contributions from the broader community.
