What is an Inclusive Casey Strategic Framework?

This is an exciting new initiative for the City of Casey which will assist us to make Casey a more inclusive place. The Inclusive Casey Strategic Framework will be a Council document which will also benefit and inform external partners and the wider community. The framework will outline key principles, goals and strategic objectives to guide work across Council to improve inclusion. The framework is being developed in consultation with community, external agencies and organisations and internal staff.

What does the Inclusive Casey Strategic Framework aim to do?

The Inclusive Casey Strategic Framework aims to make Casey a more inclusive place. It will achieve this through providing guiding principles, goals and strategic objectives which will inform and guide actions. The actions will be developed following the adoption of the Framework, however feedback on actions is being collected and collated through the consultation process.

What does access, inclusion and diversity mean?

Inclusion: Council aims to create the necessary conditions and environments that enable all people to have their aspirations met, feel valued and secure and have a sense of belonging and connectedness.

Diversity: Council recognises that each individual is unique and considers diversity in race, ethnicity, physical ability, socio-economic status, age, religious/faith beliefs, political beliefs, gender identity and sexual orientation.

Access: Council is actively committed to providing fair and equitable access to information, facilities and services that enable people to participate in community life, free from discrimination.
