Disability access

A MetroAccess Officer is located in every local government area and they aim to increase the participation of people with disability in their local communities. We assist people with disability to access education and training, transport, health, accommodation and housing, built environment, sport, recreation and the arts. MetroAccess is part of the Building Inclusive Community Program, Department of Health and Human Services.
