Albany residents living with a disability or community members with experience in reducing barriers to inclusion are wanted for a City of Albany working group to make the city more accessible.

The Access and Inclusion Working Group gives advice to the City on ways to improve access and ensure the community can help shape accessibility.

Registrations to join the working group are open to people with a disability or people with experience or skills in reducing barriers to access and inclusion. Interest must be made before November 26.

City community development co-ordinator Tammy Flett said identifying opportunities to improve the City’s Access and Inclusion Plan was essential.
