Access & inclusion

Council's Access and Inclusion Strategy(PDF, 7MB) sets out our commitment to equal participation and inclusion. The strategy identifies nine 'communities of priority' to be the focus of future actions.

Communities of priority

The strategy outlines Council's:

  • Vision
  • The outcomes we want to achieve
  • Four strategies, and
  • Actions, specific day to day actions to implement

An Action Plan(PDF, 6MB) has also been developed, covering the actions to be completed aligned to the four strategies across 2020-2022. 

Council is working towards building better communities, where all people feel safe and welcome to participate as valued citizens, making communities more inclusive.

Changing Places Facility

Echuca has a modern changing places facility available for use, located in the High Street carpark.

The facility is more than an accessible toilet and has been built to a set of guidelines and specifications which ensures it has all the necessary features to comfortably change an adult. This includes enough space for two carers, height adjustable change tables, a tracking hoist system, shower and toilet, in a safe and clean environment.
