City's new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2023 – 2028

Project Overview

The City of Bunbury’s Disability, Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2023-2028 was endorsed by the City of Bunbury Council recently and has been registered with the Disability Services Commission.

The journey for Bunbury to become an accessible community where everyone feels welcomed has been given a boost after Council endorsed its Disability, Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2023-2028.

The DAIP outlines the City’s commitment to ensuring people with disability, their carers and families have equal access to its information, facilities and services and was developed with feedback from the community and relevant stakeholders.

The plan identifies strategies, improvements and projects which will be undertaken over the next five years to continually improve accessibility and inclusion across Bunbury.

The DAIP outlines eight key themes:

  • Events and Services
  • Buildings and Facilities
  • Access to Information
  • Feedback
  • Community Engagement
  • Employment
  • Organisation Commitment

Development of the DAIP comes following an extensive and successful external and internal engagement process, which was pivotal in identifying the current barriers to accessibility and inclusion in Bunbury. We would like to thank everyone who was involved in this process.

We would like to thank everyone who provided feedback and recommendations during the development of DAIP. The feedback captured directly influenced the development of the actions outlined in the DAIP. Although you may not see specific actions relating to your feedback, we have recorded all feedback as this adds significant value to the future development of strategies and projects and further opportunities for improvement.

The DAIP was also reviewed by the City’s Disability Access and Inclusion Committee and Co-Design Access Panel.
