Access and Inclusion

The Town of Port Hedland is dedicated to creating a unified community across our townships. We will provide safe and accessible community facilities, services, events and open spaces that connect people and neighbours.

All public authorities in Western Australia are required under the Disability Services Act (WA) 1993 (amended 2004) to develop, implement, review and report on a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP).

While our DAIP sets out how the Town will meet those legislative requirements, the Town is committed to more than just compliance; our aim is to strive for excellence.

This DAIP sets out the Town’s commitment to creating a community that welcomes and includes people of all abilities. It outlines the strategies the Town will use to address barriers to access and promote inclusion for people with disability over the next five years.

The Town would like to thank everyone who took part in the creation of this plan including people with disability, their families and supporters, service providers, government representatives, Town staff and Elected Members.  All of your input has been invaluable.
