The Lighthouse Project researched the level of employment of people with disability by West Australian local governments in 2015 and the perceptions by local government staff about the benefits and challenges of employing people with disability. Outcomes of the People with Disability in Local Government: Participation and Perceptions project are outlined in the report below.

A free digital tool was developed for local governments to self-assess the suitability of their workplace for staff with disability. The tool helped local governments identify areas they could strengthen, such as physical access, effective management practices and the organisation’s inclusive culture.
To access the digital tool, please read the ‘Workplace self-assessment – digital tool user guide’. Alternatively, download a hard copy of the workplace self-assessment checklist. Please note the hard copy checklist does not have the reporting functionality and capability of the digital tool.
