Disability Access and Inclusion

The City of Vincent is committed to ensuring that services, events, information provision, buildings and facilities within its control are accessible for people of all abilities in the community. This includes meeting the specific requirements of people with disability, seniors, children, parents and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. The City recognises that all residents and visitors contribute to the social, economic and cultural life of the community.

 

The City is currently producing a new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2017-2022.

The City’s Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2012-2017  (most commonly known as the DAIP) was endorsed by Council in July 2012 and has been approved by the Disability Services Commission (DSC). An update of the Plan was endorsed by Council in June 2014 to include an additional outcome area (Outcome 7). The City submits a Local Government Authority Progress Report to DSC annually to monitor achievements on the DAIP outcomes.
