Disability Access and Inclusion Plans

The Disability Services Act 1993 requires all local government and selected State Government agencies to develop a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP).

DAIPs assist public authorities to plan and implement improvements to access and inclusion across seven outcome areas, in regards to services and events, buildings and facilities, information, quality of service, complaints, consultation processes and employment. These plans benefit people with disability, the elderly, young parents and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

DAIP Progress Reports

Under the Disability Services Act, the Minister for Disability Services is required to table a report in Parliament each year on the progress of Disability Access and Inclusion Plans (DAIPs) in Western Australia.

DAIP Progress Reports are a useful resource to understand current trends in access and inclusion and examples of best practice They include stories about how public authorities, in partnership with the community, have responded to access and inclusion issues and made a real difference in people’s lives.
