    Accessible Housing Guidelines Consultation (Disability agencies)

    This event has passed Register

    Event description

    The Australian Human Rights Commission (Commission) is partnering with Churchill Research Fellow Kim Samuel, and the Churchill Trust, to develop and pilot Australian Design Guidelines for Access and Inclusion in Residential Development.

    Background

    The Commission is holding a number of consultation sessions to provide stakeholders with an overview of the draft Guidelines. Stakeholders will also have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.

    Feedback will inform the development of the Guidelines and ensure that they are fit for purpose and consider a broad range of accessibility needs, inclusion elements, intersectionality, best practice universal design, and regulatory requirements.

    This consultation session is targeted for disability organisations and people with lived experience of disability and accessible housing issues.

    To secure your place please register before Friday 10 May.

    We also encourage relevant stakeholders to make a formal submission. Read the draft Guidelines and find out more about the consultation process.
