Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2020-2025
The Western Australian Disability Services Act (1993) requires all local governments to develop a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP). The purpose of the DAIP is to provide strategic direction and framework for the Shire to plan and implement improvements to access and inclusion across seven outcome areas. The Shire’s DAIP has been prepared in accordance with these requirements, and reflects our intention to partner with the community to achieve the improvements captured in the Plan.
The Shire will continue to explore and investigate opportunities to remove or reduce barriers to participation in a wide range of activities and functions, with the intention of making a difference in the quality of life for people with a disability who live, work and spend time in our community.
