Accessible Moonee Valley
We are committed to a more inclusive and accessible city, where everyone can access everything and feel empowered to do so.
People with disabilities face discrimination if housing, education, transport, employment, health services and information technology are not accessible. This exclusion means fewer opportunities for education and employment. Well planned cities mean people with disabilities, their families and communities are happier socially and are better off financially.
Accessible Moonee Valley will give you information on:
- Accessing services and supports
- Accessing the community
- Accessing transport
- Accessing attractions and accommodation
- Access Fact Sheets
