The City is committed to working toward equity for all community members including people with disability, their family members and carers.
The Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) sets out details on what the City of Bayswater will do in pursuit of this commitment and how it intends to do it. The overarching goal of a DAIP is to provide equity of access and inclusion to all services, facilities, functions and information provided by the City of Bayswater by identifying and redressing barriers that either restrict or prevent the full participation of people with disability.
The DAIP outlines strategies to improve Access and Inclusion across the following outcome areas:
• Services and events;
• Buildings or other infrastructure (eg: footpaths);
• Information (eg: difficulty receiving and reading information such as pamphlets and minutes, etc);
• Customer service;
• Complaint mechanisms;
• Public consultations;
• Employment; and
The Western Australian Disability Services Act (DSA) 1993 and amendments 2004, requires all State and Local Government Authorities to implement a DAIP to ensure that people with disability have equity of access and inclusion to functions, facilities and services provided by the Authority. The City reports on the implementation of its DAIP through an annual status report to the Disability Services Commission.
