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 Plan will be. Thank you to those who provided input into our first phase of consultation.
There is now opportunity for you to attend, participate and have your say about the values of the State Disability Plan and the behaviours that will support better inclusion for people with disability. This will include a series of face-to-face workshops across metropolitan and regional locations in February and March. Locations for the workshops include; Kalgoorlie, Rockingham, Middle Swan, Esperance, Joondalup, Mirrabooka, Bunbury, Margaret River, Geraldton, Albany, Canning, Cockburn, Bridgetown, Northam, Broome, Vincent, Mandurah and Port Hedland.
Come along and have your say!
