The City of Bayswater has supported people with disability and local disability service provider Cahoots by improving access to Bayswater Family Centre, as part of its Community Capital Requests Program.
Extra-wide doors with accessible handles have been installed, making it easier for people with disability to access the facility.
A new Colorbond fence and access gate were also added to improve the privacy and security of the centre.
Cahoots runs a variety of recreation programs for people with disability from Bayswater Family Centre. The accessibility upgrades will allow more people to participate in these programs, particularly wheelchair users.
The City contributed $25,900 towards the upgrades, following an application from Cahoots for the City’s 2021/2022 Community Capital Requests Program.
