Inclusive Casey Strategic Framework 2018-21 Purpose
The purpose of the Inclusive Casey Strategic Framework 2018-2021 (The Framework) is to provide a roadmap for creating a safe, inclusive and connected community – one of the City of Casey’s (Council) key strategic objectives. Meeting this objective is integral to achieving Council’s vision of creating Australia’s most liveable city.
The Framework promotes respect for all individuals in their personal beliefs, identity and choice of expression, aligned with legislation. The Framework applies a non-judgmental approach to everyone. To be an inclusive place we need to foster respect and acknowledge that everyone has the right and choice to express their personal beliefs and identity, in ways that do not impinge on the rights of others.
