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 people with disability.
Access and Inclusion Plan development has recommenced!
Work on developing our new Access and Inclusion plan was halted due to Covid-19. For details of the community consultation that took place prior to the closure and other details of this engagement can be found on My Say Freo.
The final stage of this project will include working with our Community Working Group and other stakeholders. It is projected that the new plan will now be launched in April 2021. For more detail on what's in the pipeline for the project, please see the timeline on My Say Freo.
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.
