Residents with experience and a passion for inclusive and accessible communities are invited to nominate for a new Council advisory group.

The Access Advisory Working Group will find positive solutions to help ensure the Armidale region’s facilities, services and activities are inclusive for everyone who lives, works and plays in the region.

The 10-member group will include representation of several groups in the community, including people with disability, parents and carers with young children, seniors, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, youth and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

“We’re also looking for representation of people who have temporary restrictions to access and inclusion, possibly because of an injury or health issues,” Armidale Regional Council Mayor Simon Murray said.

“It’s also important this new group includes local business operators and providers of services.”

“We’re seeking people who are committed to breaking down barriers that inhibit people from participating and contributing to our community,” he said.

“Inclusion in a key ingredient in the wellbeing of individuals and communities and the new working group will feed recommendations and information to the wellbeing committee,” Cr Murray said.

Expressions of interest are open until 4 March.
