Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

The Disability Access & Inclusion Plan (2017 - 2022) assists the City of Cockburn to make its services and facilities equitable and accessible for people with disability. Under the Disability Services Act 1993, every local and state government agency must develop a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan.

The role of the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

A Disability Access and Inclusion Plan helps public authorities plan and implement improvements to access and inclusion across seven outcome areas. These include services and events, buildings and facilities, information, quality of service, complaints, consultation processes and employment.

These plans benefit people with disability, but also the community as a whole, including the elderly, parents with prams and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

The City of Cockburn's Disability Access & Inclusion Plan ensures that all community members have equitable access to services and facilities.

The Disability Access & Inclusion Plan is available in hard copy and via email, and in alternative formats on request. Alternative formats include:

  • Large and standard print
  • Braille
  • Audio (disc and mp3 formats)
  • Easy English
Please contact the City to request a copy of the DAIP in your preferred format by calling 9411 3444 or email customer@cockburn.wa.gov.au
