Publication date: 
April 2021

In this letter, the ACT Council of Social Service (ACTCOSS) urged Senator Duniam, Assistant Minister for Industry Development, and Rebecca Vassarotti MLA, ACT Minister for Sustainable Building and Construction, to support the inclusion of mandatory accessibility standards in Australia's National Building Code at the upcoming meeting of Building Ministers. This reform would make a difference to hundreds of thousands of Australians, including people who are ageing or have a disability in the ACT.
