Earlier this year, the Shire conducted a full review of the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2017-2022. The goal was to provide key insights to access and inclusion issues and create a roadmap to becoming the most accessible community in regional Western Australia. Led by the Shire’s Community Development Team, the engagement included an Access and Inclusion Summit, Co-Design Workshops and a trial of the Access and Inclusion Ambassador Program. The Summit, a first in the South West Region, was attended by 64 local residents in person and online.
