City of Wanneroo to launch access and inclusion plan

CITY of Wanneroo will launch its access and inclusion plan this Friday.

“The new plan will benefit people with disability, as well as the elderly, young parents and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds,” Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

Mrs Roberts said it aimed to improve access, remove barriers and promote awareness of programs and services available.

“Our community is made up of people from all walks of life and it is really important we can embrace our differences so that everyone can feel connected, valued, safe and enjoy where they live and work.”

The Access and Inclusion Plan 2015-16 to 2017-18 was developed following a review of the previous disability access and inclusion plan that recognised the similarities within multicultural and disability priority services.

“The new plan highlights both accessibility and multicultural services as a high priority within our community,” the mayor said.

The launch will be at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural centre from 10.30am on April 29.
