Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

The District Council of Yankalilla is committed to facilitating a vibrant, cohesive and diverse community. Contributing to environments that are accessible and inclusive of people with diverse abilities is part of that commitment.

Council acknowledges that the community is made up of people with diverse abilities and that anyone at any time may experience an impairment of function that impacts on their ability to participate in community life or maintain their independence. By adopting a social model of disability, Council recognises that impairment only becomes a disability when environments, processes and attitudes do not accommodate it.

Council’s Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) has been developed in consultation with community, service providers and Council staff. From the outset, Council’s aim has been to build on existing strengths within the community and address significant challenges by ensuring the DAIP communicates with other plans, builds on existing initiatives and creates ongoing value for the whole community.
