Disability Services

Disability Services Plan

The Council updated the Shire's Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) in November 2012.

The DAIP has provided the Council and staff with a series of key objectives which will ensure the progress of service for people with disabilities. A Shire Officer has been appointed the task of managing the Shire's Disability Access and Inclusion Plan to ensure progress towards the endorsed actions. Changes have been implemented at various Council sites to ensure access to the same level of service for people with a disability.
