Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

The Town of Mosman Park is committed to ensuring that the community is an accessible and inclusive community for people with disabilities, their families, friends and carers.

An accessible and inclusive community is one in which people with a disability can access and are welcomed to participate in all Local Government functions, facilities and services (both in-house and contracted) in the same manner and with the same rights and responsibilities as other members of the community.

The Town's Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2016 - 2021 was recently adopted and is available to download in both Word and PDF format and available in other formats on request.

You’re Welcome

The Town of Mosman Park is a proud partner in the Disability Services Commission’s You’re Welcome - Access WA Project.

The Access WA website assists people with disability, their families, friends and carers to find accurate and detailed access information about which businesses, community services and facilities meet their access requirements.

Access WA aims to assist people with disabilities to participate in community life by:

  • providing detailed and accurate information about the accessibility of facilities and services;
  • encouraging businesses and community organisations to make their services and facilities more accessible.
  • developing and maintaining a website to provide easy-to-obtain access information; and
  • providing practical written information and access awareness training to assist business and community groups to make their services more access friendly.

Disability Access in your Business

Businesses across the Town of Mosman Park can do their bit to assist local people with disabilities and their families.

There are many ways that the business community can welcome people with disabilities both as employees and as customers.

Businesses have the potential to benefit substantially by improving customer service and considering the needs of all of their consumers including people with disabilities in their business planning and development.

The Disability Services Commission is the State Government agency that funds and provides services to Western Australians with disabilities and their families and carers. The Commission’s website, www.disability.wa.gov.au has a section for businesses under its Count Us In heading.

You will find information about:

  • employing people with disabilities;
  • building social capital;
  • customer service for people with disabilities;
  • awards for accessible businesses;
  • complaints and legislation; and
  • useful resources and links for the business community.
