People with Disabilities

2016-11 DAIP committee
At one of the DAIP committee meetings

For almost two years, I have been volunteering as a community member on the City’s Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) committee. It has given me the chance to provide input to City policies and practices that affect the lives of people with disabilities.

If you or any member of our community experience difficulties within the City of Bayswater, in the following areas:
• Buildings, facilities or footpaths 
• Getting around our community
• Signage – inadequate or non-existent signs
• Information – difficulty accessing and reading information such as pamphlets
and minutes etc.
• Special needs not being met by staff and local business.
• Community members not being included in consultation processes

Please contact the City via this Link, or via email, or complete the pamphlet (“Creating Accessible Communities”) which can be picked up at the library. Alternatively, you can directly contact me via the Contact page.

The City has a new Facebook page for their program “Bayswater Connect”, which is a pilot project linking residents to local sport, recreation and community groups. The program aims to improve the quality of life and sense of belonging for residents and foster inclusive communities.

During the last two years, I have been sharing some information on my Facebook page. Below are several posts for your information:
