Council is committed to ensuring that our policies, programs and services are inclusive for all.
We want our residents to feel a sense of belonging so that they can actively participate in and contribute to community life.
Council has joined the Welcoming Cities Network, alongside 31 local councils and governments across Australia and is now working towards accreditation.
Aligning with Welcoming Cities’ vision, membership will enable Council to further embrace diversity, foster social cohesion and enhance our region’s multicultural focus.
There are certain criteria which need to be met to achieve accreditation and Council already has initiatives in place that will contribute to accreditation.
Registering as a Welcoming City will enable Council to tap into shared learning and resources, benchmark cultural diversity and inclusion policies, programs and initiatives, identify future improvements required and assess progress over time.
