This page is about a research project.
The research is about planning communities to be inclusive of people with disabilities.
When we say community we mean the area where you live. Your home. For example, you live in a suburb in the Clarence City Council area.
When we say inclusive we mean you have the same opportunities to participate in everyday things in your community like everyone else.
We want to make communities inclusive for everyone.
This project will go for 3 years.
We want to find out what an inclusive community means.
We want to know how we can better plan communities for everyone.
We want to hear from everyone in the community.
Our aim is to develop a way to do things better.
The Local Councils
QUT is working with two chosen local regional councils:
Clarence City Council, Tasmania
Gympie Regional Council, Queensland.
The project is funded by the Australian Research Council.
