We are committed to creating a more inclusive community for all people.

The Burwood Council Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) aims to achieve our goal of a more inclusive community. 

The main objective of the DIAP is to ensure that people with a disability have an opportunity to fully participate in the social, community and business life of Burwood. The plan outlines key strategies and actions that will assist in overcoming barriers to inclusion.These strategies will be incorporated into Council's planning for the next four years.
