Disability access and inclusion plan

The Equal Opportunity Commission has developed a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2008-2012 in accordance with the requirements of the Disability Services Act 1993 (as amended). 

The plan ensures people with disabilities, their families and carers are able to fully access the department's range of services, information and facilities.

The Commission's plan was developed in consultation with stakeholders and is available to the community.

The plan contains strategies the department will implement to address six outcomes:

  • Services
  • Events
  • Building and facilities
  • Information 
  • Complaints mechanisms, and
  • Consultation processes.

For people with disabilities to have the same opportunities as others to participate in community life it is important  that the services and facilities provided to the community address the access requirements of people with disabilities.

The Commission is committed to developing and maintaining effective inclusive policies, practices and structures to  ensure that people with disabilities, their families and carers are able to fully access the range of the Commission’s services and facilities.

The Commission acknowledges its responsibilities with regard to the standards contained in State (Disability Services Act 1993 and Equal Opportunity Act 1984) and Commonwealth (Disability Discrimination Act 1992) legislation.
