The City of Fremantle encourages diversity and is committed to creating an accessible, inclusive and welcoming community for people of all ages and abilities.
We are committed to making continual improvements to ensure that buildings, facilities, services, events, information and employment opportunities are available to all community members – including those who have a disability.
The City of Fremantle's 2016-2020 Access and Inclusion Plan outlines a strategic approach to improve access and inclusion for people with disability over the next five years. The actions of this plan will also benefit seniors, people with temporary injuries and parents with young children in prams.
