Disability Access and Inclusion Plan survey

Published on Wednesday, 1 May 2024 at 11:55:06 AM

Disability affects one sixth of the Western Australian population and most people with disability experience some form of limitation or restriction.

The Disability Services Act 1993 requires all local governments to develop a DAIP, which is used to ensure that everyone can access Shire facilities and services.

The DAIP covers seven outcome areas: services and events, Shire buildings and facilities, Shire information, customer service, complaints, public consultation, and employment.

The DAIP focuses on addressing barriers faced by people with disability, and also identifies access and inclusion issues for older people, parents, youth and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

All survey responses will be kept confidential and the information gathered will be used to identify opportunities to make Plantagenet more accessible and inclusive for all.

The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/27R2NNF

Hard copies are available from the Shire Administration Office and Mount Barker Public Library.

Survey closes Friday 24 May 2024.
