The Access and Inclusion Community Partnership Program supports projects that improve access and inclusion in Brisbane (in particular, community-led initiatives). The program provides funds to incorporated not-for-profit community organisations and networks, or unincorporated groups sponsored by an incorporated not-for-profit organisation.
Council recognises that better access and inclusion will benefit all Brisbane residents and visitors - in particular, people with a disability or long-term chronic condition, people experiencing temporary impairment, seniors with access concerns, parents with young children, and associated family, friends and carers.
The Access and Inclusion Community Partnership Program aims to:
- improve the accessibility of community facilities, services or venues
- support initiatives and partnerships in response to challenges experienced by people with a disability and their carers
- remove barriers to access and inclusion in local community sport, recreation, cultural and social activities
- remove barriers to inclusion in community services.
