What is the purpose of a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP)

    The purpose of a DAIP is to ensure that people with disability can access all information, services and facilities provided by Local Government Authorities (LGA’s) in WA and be included in the community.

    Why does the Shire have a DAIP?

    The Shire plays a vital role in the lives of people with disability and people in the community because of their broad mandate. LGA’s are multi-functional, with extensive responsibilities and activities across property, community and human services, with the capacity to make an impact at a local level.

    What legislation governs a DAIP?

    Disability Services Act 1993 (amended 2004). 

    Schedule 3 of the Disability Services Regulations, 2013 states the seven desired outcomes of a DAIP: 

    1. Services and events
    2. Buildings and other facilities
    3. Information
    4. Same level and quality of service
    5. Complaint mechanisms
    6. Consultations
    7. Employment

    Who do I contact if I need help completing the survey?
