The State Government is developing a 10-year plan to build an inclusive community which supports and empowers people with disability.
The aim is to engage, listen and understand the needs of the community - including people with disability, their families and carers as well as those working in the sector. Importantly, it is not just for people with disability, but for all Western Australians who want to live in an inclusive community.
Consultation to define the 10-year vision has now closed and we are analysing the feedback received and shaping what the vision for the State Disability Plan (the Plan) will be. Thank you to those who provided input into our first phase of consultation.
Community face-to-face workshops in metropolitan and regional locations throughout the State will be running from February through to early April. These workshops are one way you can have your say about the values of the Plan, what you would like to see in the Plan and the behaviours that will support better inclusion for people with disability. Pre-bookings for workshops are essential. To register visit http://state-disability-plan.eventbrite.com.au/
Unable to attend a community workshop? You can still have your say via an online survey, which asks similar questions to those addressed in the workshops. Feedback will help shape the Plan and a social change campaign to support people with disability and a more inclusive community. The survey closes on Tuesday 30 April 2019.

If you have a group of between 6-30 people and you would like to run your own workshop, our Conversation Kits can be used to hear feedback from your network.
Each kit contains background information on the Plan, a PowerPoint presentation to support your workshop, worksheets for your guests to complete and a reporting template to collect all the thoughts of your workshop. Contact us via email email@example.com or phone (08) 6167 8899 for more information.
All feedback must be sent back to us by Tuesday 30 April 2019.
Consultation with the community will take place through 2019 in a variety of forms through three phases of development.
