The Access and Equity Advisory Committee has been established to provide advice to the City of Kingston in relation to access and equity issues within the community. The Committee works towards a sustainable, equal and more inclusive community.
This includes a focus on four strategic areas within the City of Kingston: Indigenous people, people with disabilities, people from multicultural backgrounds and older people through the development of an Age Friendly Community.
We work toward a sustainable, equal and more inclusive community.
Who we support:
Aboriginal people, people with a disability, people from multicultural backgrounds and senior community members.
What we do:
The Access and Equity Advisory Committee is an advisory committee of Council, with a Councillor or Councillors nominated on an annual basis. The
establishment of an Access and Equity Advisory Committee provides an important forum for identifying municipal-wide issues and opportunities. The Committee advises Council about effective policy and service provision regarding access and equity, within the City of Kingston.
As with all City of Kingston Advisory Committees, the Access and Equity Advisory Committee has a citywide focus. The Committee should focus on issues and opportunities that are relevant across the entire municipality. The Committee should provide specialist advice to Council as an input into decisions that impact Council policy.
Why we do it:
All people have access to opportunities and services as a basic human right, for people from Aboriginal and multicultural backgrounds, senior community members and people with a disability to participate fully in the life of the community.
How we work:
The Access and Equity Advisory Committee focuses on issues of concern for Aboriginal people, people with a disability, senior community members and people from multicultural backgrounds.
