Currently the City is reviewing its Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) and invites feedback from people with disability, their families and carers, disability service providers and community groups to help inform the new five year plan. This survey will help identify areas of importance when developing DAIP strategies and will also inform the City’s Community Development Strategy.

Should you require assistance to complete the survey Customer Service Staff are available at the City Civic Centre on Cathedral Avenue.

Everyone who completes this survey before it closes on Sunday 24 February at midnight will be eligible to win a $200 gift voucher.
