Inclusive Community Champions

Brisbane’s City Botanic Gardens was recently awarded the Inclusive Community Champion’s Award from Spinal Injuries Australia for Best Recreation Venue.

‘Keen to recognise and acknowledge QLD venues, facilities and organisations in the community that foster a truly inclusive community’ the awards focus on an inclusion of ALL users, not disability exclusively.  The State Champion was awarded to the Supreme Court of QLD for the ‘Equal Treatment Benchbook’ which comprehensively discusses a host of considerations that may render the playing field of a court uneven.  A truly inspiring initiative promoting true inclusion.

We were thrilled to have been honoured – with Brisbane City Councils’ City Design team – with this award and look forward to our continued work in helping to provide inclusive recreational spaces in our communities.
