About the Project

Planning Inclusive Communities in regional areas.

Group of diverse people with disabilities and/or chronic illness.

This research is about how we can plan communities to be more inclusive of people with disabilities and/or chronic illness across all ages.

Our interest is making communities inclusive for all.

To do this we are wanting to hear from everyone in the community.

We want to find out what an inclusive community means and how we can better plan communities for everyone.

The Plan

Over three years we will be gathering this information with community members.

Our aim is to develop a way to do things better.
