Disability Access and Inclusion Plan under review

We asked:

We are reviewing how we support people with a disability and have been hearing from people with disability, family members, carers, disability service organisations and disability advocates.

We met with the Disability Reference Group, handed out a survey to get your views and held a community catchup with several groups to hear more.

The existing Plan is available in alternative formats on request.

You said:

We are now reviewing your input and drafting a new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan for sign-off by Council.

  • Changing Places

    Changing places

    In 2017, the City of Cockburn became one of the first in the state with an accredited 'Changing Place' facility. Changing Places are internationally recognised facilities that offer a clean and secure changing place for people with disability who need space and assistance to use the bathroom when they are away from home.

    The City received funding from the State Government’s Changing Places Grant Program to deliver the project. The Grant Program was funded by the Department of Communities (formerly the Disability Services Commission) and administered by the Western Australian Local Government Association (WALGA).

    As part of an overall evaluation of the Grant Program, surveys are being delivered to identify how Changing Place facilities have impacted on people with disability, their families, carers and the broader community.

    If you have personally used, or supported someone with a disability to use the Changing Place in the public toilet block at the Bibra Lake Regional Playground (Progress Drive, Bibra Lake) we would love to hear your feedback.

    Please complete this short, online survey to share your feedback: https://culturecounts.cc/s/46triN

    Your feedback is anonymous and will greatly support the measurement and promotion of the impact that projects like this one have on our community.
