Disability and Access Inclusion Plan review

6th July 2020

DISABILITY ACCESS AND INCLUSION PLAN (DAIP)

The Disability Services Act 1993 requires all local governments and selected state government agencies to develop a DAIP to assist in the promotion of access and inclusion of people with disability.

The Shire of Carnamah is currently reviewing its DAIP, which includes a commitment to the following desired outcomes of disability and inclusion:

  1. People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to access the services of, and any events organised by, a public authority.
  2. People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to access the buildings and other facilities of a public authority.
  3. People with disability receive information from a public authority in a format that will enable them to access the information as readily as other people are able to access it.
  4. People with disability receive the same level and quality of service from the staff of a public authority as other people receive from the staff of that public authority.
  5. People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to make complaints to a public authority.
  6. People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to participate in any public consultation by a public authority.
  7. People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to obtain and maintain employment with a public authority.

We are seeking comments from members of the community, particularly those with disability, on any barriers to these outcomes being achieved, any opportunities for the Shire to work on, and any successes the Shire has achieved in this area.

Responses must be received by the Shire by Friday 10 July via the following methods:

In Person: Shire Office, 33-37 MacPherson St, Carnamah
By Mail: Shire of Carnamah, PO Box 80, Carnamah WA 6517

Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund

29th June 2020

The Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) is now open. 

The purpose of the program is to provide financial assistance to community groups and local governments to develop basic infrastructure for sport and recreation. The program aims to maintain or increase participation in sport and recreation with an emphasis on physical activity, through rational development of good quality, well-designed and well-utilised facilities.

Through CSRFF, the Western Australian Government will invest $12 million in the 2021–2022 financial year towards the development of quality physical environments in which people can enjoy sport and recreation. The maximum grant offered for standard grant applications is one third of the total estimated project cost (excluding GST) up to a maximum grant of $2 million.

The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) will assess the total eligible cost of your project (excluding GST) from the information provided.

Some applications will be eligible for up to one half of the project cost. This eligibility will be measured against key development principles. Applicants will have to show their eligibility through the development bonus section of the application form. Meeting Development Bonus criteria will not automatically ensure the applicant is eligible for 50% of the project cost. Applicants will need to return unspent funds to DLGSC in accordance with the terms of the grant agreement.
