Inaugural meeting of the Disability Action Group

By July 7, 2008No Comments

This morning I was invited to attend the inaugural meeting of the Disability Action Group, which aims to provide a voice for people with disabilities within Maroondah and the eastern region.

The group while new, already has a number of priorities, including lobbying for accessibility improvements and the redevelopment of Ringwood Station as well as ensuring that the Ringwood Town Centre will become fully accessible. Furthermore the group aims to educate the broader community as to the importance of accessibility within our community.

The group is currently refining its aims and objectives to ensure a productive approach to tackling accessibility issues with a subsequent meeting scheduled for next month.
