Disability Support

Wagga Wagga City Council is committed to making our community inclusive and accessible for all.

Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2022 - 2026

Developing and implementing a Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2022 - 2026, we feel it is important for us to have a document that reflects what the community wants and needs in relation to all abilities. It is important to also focus on how we can continue to make Wagga Wagga a liveable city and to grow into the future.
