Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

The City recognises the social model of disability. We are committed to investigating ways to remove barriers to access and inclusion that may restrict a person’s abilities. The City is committed to actively promoting environments and services in which all people are valued and have the choices to live their best lives.

The development of the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) is guided by The Western Australian Disability Services Act 1993 (Amended 2004). The Act requires all Local Governments to develop and implement a DAIP. This helps ensure that people with disability have equal access to facilities, services and employment opportunities.

Other legislation underpinning access and inclusion includes The Western Australian Equal Opportunity Act 1984 and the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA). Both of these ensure that discrimination, on the basis of a person’s disability, is unlawful.

This plan outlines the City’s key strategies to address each of the ‘outcome’ areas of the DAIP:

  • People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to access the services of, and any events organised by the City of Kwinana.
  • People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to access the buildings and other facilities of the City of Kwinana.
  • People with disability receive information from the City of Kwinana in a format that will enable them to access the information, as readily as other people are able to access it.
  • People with disability receive the same level and quality of service from the staff of the City of Kwinana as other people receive from the staff at the City of Kwinana.
  • People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to make complaints to the City of Kwinana.
  • People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to participate in any public consultation by the City of Kwinana.
  • People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to obtain and maintain employment with the City of Kwinana.
  • The City will build community capacity and advocate for the inclusion of all people including those with disability.
