New Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2018-2023

The City is developing a new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP), covering 2018-2023, and wants to hear from you! The aim of this plan is to ensure the City provides access for everyone and is keen to hear your suggestions.

Did you know about 19% of people in WA have a disability,12% care for someone with disability and about 30% of people in our community are affected by disability? Given that number, it’s important the City considers and provides for everyone’s access needs.

Many people benefit from access improvements. For example, an automatic door assists both a parent pushing a pram and a person in a wheelchair. While age is not a disability, the incidence of disability increases with age. As a result, older people are more likely to have a disability and have greater access needs.

We would like to hear your thoughts on how accessible you find services, events, buildings, employment and other things provided by the City of Nedlands.

The new DAIP will have actions aimed at providing access for all in the following areas:

  • Services and events
  • Buildings and facilities
  • Information
  • Customer service
  • Complaints
  • Community engagement
  • Employment.

We welcome your ideas on how we can make these areas accessible for everyone – and we appreciate you taking the time to provide input.

Your comments are important to the City as all feedback received will be used to inform the development of the new DAIP 2018-2023 for presentation to the Disability Services Committee and the Council.

How can you get involved, find out more or provide feedback
