Planning for the future

Council has been supporting the direct service provision of ageing and disability services for many years, with the provision of community facilities, direct services and the allocation of grants and subsidies.

The Delivery Program and Operational Plan describes how Council will work with the community to achieve its goals. The Disability Inclusion Action Plan (PDF version, Word Version, Easy Read Version) and Social and Cultural Plan (PDF) identifies short and long term priorities for the Woollahra community including seniors and people with a disability.
