City of Newcastle seeks to facilitate and support initiatives that make our city a more liveable and inclusive community for those who reside, visit and work here. In 2016 Council adopted our Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2016‐2019
to help guide and co‐ordinate our efforts towards creating a more inclusive and equitable society.
In consultation with the Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee, it was agreed to acknowledge International Day of People with Disabilities for 2019 via the establishment of a pilot program of events and activities under the title of "Count Us In Newcastle" over the period of 27 September until 25 October 2019.
Count us in Newcastle 2020
The program for 2019 was a success and included a wide range of events and activities that demonstrates that Newcastle is a caring and inclusive community. City of Newcastle would like to thank all partners and other members of the community who were part of the program and we look forward to 2020.
