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.

A home of my own
Looking for a place to live can be an exciting and challenging time.
There are lots of things to think about when you would like to move into your own home.
We've created 'a home of my own' to help with:
- the types of houses that best meet your needs
- the skills you need to live on your own
- how to use your NDIS funding to reach your housing goals
- housing advocacy and support services.
