Metro Access

What is Metro Access?

Metro Access is a key initiative of the Department of Health and Human Services and is implemented in partnership with local government.

How does Metro Access Work?

Metro Access assists the community to include people with a disability and their families and carers by:

  • Helping people and organisations work together more effectively
  • Raising awareness about the needs and aspirations of people with a disability
  • Developing and implementing responses to community priorities
  • Supporting service providers to assist people with a disability to live the lives they choose
  • Developing easy ways for people to access the information they need about services, community activities and issues.

Hume Disability Action Plan Capital Works Project

Hume City Council's Disability Action Plan Capital Works Program supports the annual retrofit of Council facilities to be fully accessible.  

A range of works have been undertaken to make 44 community spaces fully accessible in Hume City. This has often included reconfiguring building entries, constructing accessible paths of travel from car parks to the buildings and improving toilet facilities and reception areas.

This project has made it possible for people with disabilities to better access services, meetings and events and provide more opportunities for engagement, social inclusion and community activities.

The Hume Disability Action Plan Capital Works project is currently funded by Council's Capital Works program.
