NEW DISABILITY ACCESS AND INCLUSION PLAN 2021-2026

 

The purpose of a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) is to ensure that people with a disability can access services provided by public authorities in Western Australia and to participate and be included in their community. 

The goal is to provide, as much as reasonable, the same level of access as people without disability enjoy, and to ensure that people are not discriminated against on the basis of their disability.

Following a period of public consultation where community members were invited to submit feedback about their experience with accessibility of Council facilities and services, the Shire of Gnowangerup completed a review of the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan, with a view to the next five year period 2021-2026.  Thank you to those members of the community who provided feedback and suggestions, these have been noted for consideration in this year's works program.

At its Ordinary Council Meeting held on 23rd June 2021 the Council endorsed the new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2021-2026.

A copy of the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2021-2026 is available here.  Hard copies are available on request from the Shire office.
