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:

Email: ceo@carnamah.wa.gov.au
In Person: Shire Office, 33-37 MacPherson St, Carnamah
By Mail: Shire of Carnamah, PO Box 80, Carnamah WA 6517
