Community Engagement: Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

The Shire of York is dedicated to creating a more inclusive and accessible community for all. As part of this commitment, we are developing a new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) for 2024-2028 and we need your feedback!

Purpose of the DAIP: The DAIP aims to ensure that everyone, including people with disabilities, can fully participate in and enjoy all aspects of life in the Shire of York. This includes access to buildings, information, feedback and complaints processes, services, and employment opportunities.

Your Feedback Matters: We want to hear from you about what is working well and how we can improve accessibility and inclusion in the Shire of York. Your feedback will help us shape the new DAIP and make our community more welcoming for everyone.
