Disability access

We recognise and support the rights of people with all abilities to equitable access to buildings, facilities, services and employment.

We comply with the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and other relevant standards, regulations and legislation to ensure provision of access by people with disabilities to our operations, services and facilities.

Our Access For All Strategy 2011-2014 focuses on improving access for all residents.

Our Disability Action Plan 2011-2014 also highlights the commitment to improving access for people with disabilities.

We administer the Disabled Persons Parking Scheme in Wodonga and provide for disabled parking across the city.

Wodonga has rolled out the the RECHARGE Scheme‚ĄĘ¬†with several locations available to recharge your scooter/wheelchair when you are out and about.

A mobility map was specifically designed to assist people with a disability to move more freely throughout the community.

It contains details of access to such facilities as car parks, bus stops, banks and public toilets in Wodonga and at the Baranduda and Birallee shopping centres.

It also includes a list of emergency and essential phone numbers.

The Cube Wodonga, located at 118 Hovell St, is the only facility in Wodonga with a disabled toilet that has a hoist available if required.
