This video explains the Planning Inclusive Communities research project.

The research is being done by Queensland University of Technology.

The researcher is Dr. Lisa Stafford.

The project is about making communities inclusive for People with disabilities and chronic illness in regional areas.

When we say community, we mean the area where you live.

For example, you live 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.

Two regional councils are involved in the research, Clarence City Council, Tasmania, and Gympie Regional Council, Queensland.

We are at the first stage of the research.

We want to find out what inclusive communities means to people.

We also want to find out about your community and how inclusive it is.

How can you participate?

You can have your say by completing the questionnaire.

The questionnaire is for everyone 18 years and over who lives, works or studies in the Clarence City Council or Gympie Regional Council area.

This includes People with disabilities and chronic illness, local council staff, local community organisations, local businesses, planners, architects, developers and other general community members.

The storyboard project uses storytelling, pictures and drawings to show us what inclusive community means to you.

The storyboard project is for People with disabilities or chronic illness age nine and over who live, work or study in the Clarence City Council or Gympie Regional Council area.
