Tamworth Access Awards
The Tamworth Regional Council Access Awards are an initiative of Tamworth Access Group and Council. The Awards recognise business and community groups who make an extraordinary effort to ensure that their business or service accessible to all.
Accessible communities are ones where businesses, facilities and services are open and available to all, including people with disabilities. In an accessible community, people with disabilities are able to access to the same opportunities as well as the rights and responsibilities enjoyed by others.
Examples of what makes an accessible community includes the built environment (access to buildings) as well as transportation, communication and technological systems, employment practices, occupational health and safety, access to information, recreational and social facilities and services and complaints procedures.
Nominations open in October/November each year, with the award ceremony held in December. Further information is available at the Tamworth Community Centre by calling (02) 6766 4480 or contact Council.
