Making Melbourne inclusive for people with a disability


Project Details

This project aims to identify ways in which the City of Melbourne can be more inclusive for people with disability. We are bringing together people with disability, City of Melbourne staff, disability advocates and academics in a series of solutions-focused workshops. Workshop tasks involve brainstorming ideas on how the City of Melbourne can be made more inclusive for people with disability, sorting the ideas into themes, and then rating the ideas on importance and feasibility of implementation. The method has a number of advantages, including the ability to compare the responses of City of Melbourne staff and people with disability on what they think are the most important actions to undertake, and further, understand misalignments in feasibility of implementation. The outcomes of this project will be a series of feasible, important actions that the City of Melbourne can implement and/or embed into the Disability Action Plan.
