The City of Gosnells is updating its Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) for the next 5 years: 2024 - 2028 and we need your feedback.
DIAPs promote accessibility and inclusivity for people with disabilities by providing a framework for implementing strategies and initiatives that ensure equal access to key services provided by Local Governments.
4.7 per cent of the City's population reported needing assistance in their day-to-day lives due to disability. As our population grows and the demographics of the City continue to change, it is likely we will continue to see a growth in the number of residents who need assistance.
The City would like to understand, address and alleviate barriers people with disability may encounter when dealing with the City. Our goal is to make our community more inclusive and accessible.
The seven outcomes of the current Disability Access and Inclusion Plan are:
People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to access the services of, and any events organised by, the City of Gosnells
People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to access the buildings and other facilities of the City of Gosnells.

- or a combination of those impairments
- permanent or likely to be permanent
- may or may not be of a chronic episodic nature
- results in substantially reduced capacity of the person for communication, social interaction, learning or mobility and a need for continuing support services
