Improving access and inclusion in Broome

Released 1 March 2018

The Shire of Broome is undertaking a review of its Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) and input is being sought from the community.

The WA Disability Services Act 1993 requires that local governments have a DAIP in place and that it must be updated every five years.

The purpose of the DAIP is to set out strategies to ensure that people with a disability can access local government services, and that these services facilitate increased independence, opportunities and inclusion for people with a disability.

The strategies cover outcomes including access to services and events; access to buildings and other facilities; access to information; quality of service provided by the local government; opportunity to make complaints; opportunity to participate in public consultation; and employment at the local government.   

Shire of Broome Manager Community and Economic Development, Mark Davis, said information for the review was now being gathered in a variety of ways including meeting one-on-one with key stakeholders and organisations, and gathering feedback through a community survey.

The survey can be completed online at the link below or by hardcopy collected from the Shire Administration or Library, and is open until Friday 9 March.

Once a draft DAIP has been prepared it will be publicly advertised for further community feedback before it is presented to Council for adoption.
