The Wheatbelt Development Commission's draft Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2017-22 is now open for public comment.

It is a requirement of the Disability Services Act 1993 that public authorities develop and implement a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) that outlines the ways which an authority will ensure that people with disabilities have equal access to its facilities and services. 

Other legislation underpinning access and inclusion includes the WA Equal Opportunity Act 1984 and the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA).

The Wheatbelt Development Commission recognises that people with disabilities make a variety of valuable contributions to social, economic and cultural life, and may be valid representatives to the Commission’s consultative process for particular projects.  

The Wheatbelt Development Commission is committed to ensuring that current and prospective clients with disabilities, their families and carers are able to fully access the Commission’s services.  The particular needs of individuals or client groups are always considered, and service delivery adapted accordingly. 

For all enquiries/comments please contact the Wheatbelt Development Commission on 9622 7222 or email info@wheatbelt.wa.gov.au.
