City of Mandurah launches 2015-2020 Access and Inclusion Plan

CITY of Mandurah has officially launched its 2015-2020 Access and Inclusion Plan.

The plan will implement a range of initiatives and projects, including seven main outcomes to provide people with disability the same opportunities as others.

They include services including events, buildings and other facilities, information in appropriate formats, quality of service from staff, feedback and complaints systems, public consultation processes and employment opportunities.

Although aimed at addressing inequalities faced by people with disability, the strategies also improve access for elderly people, families and those with temporary mobility-related impairments.

Mayor Marina Vergone said the City was committed to including people with disability through the improvement of access to its facilities and services.

“Since the first plan was introduced in 1994, the City has implemented many initiatives and continues to progress towards better access and inclusion for our community,” she said.

The City’s ongoing partnership with a number of disability service groups has enabled it to provide social, training and employment opportunities to local people with a disability.

The Access and Inclusion Plan 2015-2020 is available at www.mandurah.wa.gov.au or by emailing cdo@mandurah.wa.gov.au.
