Take Part in Council's Disability Study


13 May 2019

We want to understand the needs and experiences of people living with disability and/or mental illness in the Blue Mountains.

Please help us build our knowledge of issues experienced since the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), by completing our online survey.

Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill, said the survey is part of a wide-ranging study that Council is conducting to help develop local solutions for people living with disability and/or mental illness in the City.

“Hearing the first-hand experiences of people in our community living with disability or mental illness is vital in helping us gain a better understanding of your needs,” Cr Greenhill said.

“Building our knowledge of issues experienced since the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in the Blue Mountains will help us to provide better outcomes.”
