Social Inclusion (18-64 years)

Disability Inclusion Action Plan

City of Parramatta Council is now developing its Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) for the Parramatta Local Government Area (LGA).

Through the DIAP we are looking to improve the way we do things, so that people living with a disability have better access to information, services, council buildings, facilities, employment opportunities and community programs and events.

We listened to what the community had to say  via three discussion  groups and  an online survey. We are now in the process of developing the actions Council will take over the next 4 years to improve access and inclusion for people with a disability in the Parramatta LGA.

If you would like more information about City of Parramatta’s DIAP please contact Sabrina on 9806 5121.

 

 

Social Inclusion

Our Social Inclusion Program provides support for people with disability and their carers. The program aims to help you feel more included, connected and valued in our community and builds on your existing skills, strengths, interest and networks.

Working with you individually, our trained volunteers take the time to help you identify a goal and assist you in developing a plan to achieve your goal. We can support you with:

  • reconnecting with family and friends
  • engaging in social activities
  • staying fit and healthy
  • joining a club or group
  • finding and participating in training or education options
  • finding volunteering opportunities.

You'll need to pay for your own transport and activity cost. 

This service is funded by the Federal and NSW State Government to provide social support, information and advocacy to enable people to remain independent and living at home, preventing premature admission to a nursing home or other residential care.
