The City of Melville provides and facilitates support and advocacy for residents who require assistance with Access & Inclusion
The City of Melville is committed to making a great place for all its residents and has a Community Development Officer – Social Inclusion to ensure that:
- individuals with disabilities and their families/carers enjoy living in an accessible friendly city;
- local community groups and members are supported in developing and delivering facilities, information and programs that are inclusive of, or specific to, people with disabilities;
- awareness of issues for people with disabilities and their families/carers is raised through events and training;
- people with disabilities are able to be involved in decision making about their community.
The City aims to achieve this throught the strategies outlined in our Disablity Access and Inclusion Plan 2012-2017 (DAIP). The City has createa a DAIP summary document that is available in hard copy at the Civic Centre, Libraries and on request that outlines why we have a DAIP, how the DAIP was developed and the strategies that the City will employ to improve access and inclusion. The full DAIP document is availalbe on the website and in alternative formats on request.
