Disability

Approximately 29,000 people in Knox have a disability of some kind. This equates to 19 percent of Knox's 152,000 residents. By 2011, population forecasts indicate that the age structure of Knox will change with substantially higher proportions of Knox's population in the 65+ age group. This trend means an increase in the proportion of the population living with a disability.

Council's vision is to be responsive, innovative and energetic in developing an accessible and inclusive community that embraces people with disabilities. Council aims to ensure that all Knox residents can participate in and contribute to community life with independence, equity and dignity. Council will achieve this through the co-ordination and provision of a variety of support services and community projects.
