Accessible Moonee Valley
We are committed to a more inclusive and accessible city, where everyone can access everything and feel empowered to do so.

Accessing the community
Around our city are facilities that help to make the it easier to navigate for those living with a disability.

You can visit our Civic Centre if you would like to talk to a Moonee Valley staff member face to face. They can help you with rates inquiries, rubbish collections, bin orders, kindergarten applications, animal registrations and even hiring community spaces. They are Relay Service Friendly too.
Accessing Council meetings
Assistant listening devices are available to members of the public attending meetings in Council Chambers.
Disability Advisory Committee
The Moonee Valley Disability Advisory Committee (DAC) provides us with a forum to consult with community members and seek specialist advice around disability.
The DAC is comprised of a selection of people with disabilities, their family or carers, who represent a cross section of the local community and reside in different geographic locations across Moonee Valley.
The purpose of the DAC is to:
- Provide advice to Council on issues relating to disability access, inclusion, communication, participation and advocacy.
- Identify issues affecting people with a disability, and advocate, and promote an awareness and understanding of these within Council and the community.
- Support and advise Council on the development and implementation of the Moonee Valley City Council’s Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2014-2023.
- Provide staff with support and advice around the operational aspects of disability service delivery, future initiatives and overarching actions plans that relate to people with disability and our MV2040 strategy.
Community members are encourage to contact the DAC directly should they have any issues relating to access or inclusion, or suggestions around how to make Moonee Valley a more inclusive space for all community members.
If you or someone you care for has a disability and needs help to get around, there is support available for our public transport system including train, trams and bus services, ride share services and community transport services.
