Public consultation

Public consultation is a way to voice your opinion on things that shape your community. 

Have your say at Comment on Cockburn for how the City can improve access for all in the community as we draft our next Disability Access and Inclusion Plan by 26 September, 2017, for the chance to win one of three $50 vouchers!

If you wish to participate in public consultation and feel that there are accessibility issues restricting you from participating (e.g. you require an Auslan interpreter), please contact us in advance so we can accommodate your request.

Focus group consultation

Focus group consultations ensure we hear the opinions of people with disability, their carers, advocates and service providers. The City is creating a register to notify interested people of focus group consultations.

If you would like to join our register, please contact us.

Disability Reference Group

The Disability Reference Group (DRG) is a group of people who are passionate about equality and making a real difference in the Cockburn community. The DRG meets monthly to exchange information and discuss access and inclusion issues in the City of Cockburn.

For more information contact the Disability Access and Inclusion Officer.
