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.

We're seeking community input on our Access and Inclusion Plan.
If you or someone you know faces any barriers accessing buildings, events, information or facilities in the City of Fremantle, we’d like to hear from you.
We’d also like to find out about your experiences making meaningful social connections and participating in Fremantle community life.
