The City of Canning's Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2023-2028 (PDF 5MB) demonstrates the City’s commitment to improving access and inclusion for people with disabilities over the next five years.

Background

The Disability Services Act 1993 requires all local governments to develop a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP). DAIPs assist public authorities to plan and implement improvements to access and inclusion across the following seven outcome areas:

  • services and events
  • buildings and facilities
  • information
  • quality of service
  • complaints
  • consultation processes
  • employment

Whilst DAIPs have a strong focus on addressing barriers faced by people with disability, the strategies that address these can promote better access and inclusion for older persons, parents, youth and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
