Draft Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2017-2022 Feedback
The City of Vincent is committed to working in ways that result in strong vibrant communities where everyone can belong, matter and contribute.
We are currently producing a new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2017-2022 to build an even more friendly and welcoming community for everyone, including people with disability, their family members, friends and carers.
Late last year the City reviewed its DAIP 2012-2017, consulting across the community to help determine ways to make Vincent more accessible and inclusive.
A draft DAIP for the period 2017-2022 has now been produced and is available for public comment.
(The document is also available in alternative formats upon request.)

What is a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan?
Disability Access and Inclusion Plans (DAIPs) assist public authorities to plan and implement improvements to access and inclusion across seven outcome areas, in regards to:
- Services and events
- Buildings and facilities
- Quality of service
- Consultation processes and
The purpose of the DAIP is to develop strategies that ensure everyone can access services, premises and facilities provided by the City and to participate and be included in their community. These plans benefit people with disability, the elderly, young parents and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Why is a DAIP so important?
With an estimated 1 in 5 people in the Australian community experiencing some form of physical, mental or social restriction, these are issues that are likely to affect you, someone you care for, someone you work with, a friend or family member. The disability may be permanent, occur from time to time, or be temporary resulting from an illness or accident. There are also common issues that are relevant for everyone to be able to safely and comfortably be out in the community, for example tripping hazards, the design and placement of signs and issues affecting parents with small children.
What happens to your feedback?
Comments on the draft Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2017-2022 are being received until 5.00pm. Monday 10 April 2017.
All comments and ideas will be considered as the DAIP 2017-2022 is finalized.
The final DAIP 2017-2022 will then be endorsed by Council and lodged with the Disability Services Commission and Australian Human Rights Commission.
The DAIP 2017-2022 will be publically available by mid-2017.
The City welcomes ongoing feedback from community members relating to any access and inclusion experiences within Vincent.
