About the organisation

Ipswich City Council’s Seniors and Disabilities Community Development

Ipswich City Council has a commitment to enhancing the quality of life for people with a disability. In January 1998 Ipswich City Council adopted a Social Justice Policy and a Disability, Access and Equity Policy. The establishment of these policies demonstrated a commitment by Ipswich City Council to the valued contribution of each individual within our community and the role that Ipswich City Council plays in ensuring equality among all individuals.
