Inclusion & Access Advisory Committee


The purpose of the IAAC is to provide advice and guidance to Shoalhaven City Council, its staff and residents on accessibility and inclusion. 

The IAAC is an inclusive space that allows individuals from diverse backgrounds to work together to create conditions for individuals and communities to thrive. Members are supported to participate in the committee in a way that meets their specific needs.

The IAAC helps to create an accessible, inclusive and welcoming community that respects independence and human dignity by:

  • Ensuring that all residents can participle actively in all aspects of community and civic life and ensure that Council recognises and values the diversity of its community.
  • Identifying and addressing barriers preventing people from participating in programs, services and facilities across the region.

And advocate for:

  • Adherence to the principles of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the NSW Disability Inclusion Act 2014 which will benefit the community.
  • Inclusion in our community through recommendations to improve the built environment, changes in community attitudes and behaviours, and creating better systems and processes for meaningful participation of people of all abilities.
