The Port Augusta City Council Disability Access and Inclusion Plan has been developed with Council’s Strategic Directions 2019-2029 in mind. Theme 1: Community includes the desired outcome (3) “People of all ages, cultures, abilities and interests have access to services, facilities and experiences that support their health and wellbeing.”

It is structured around themes and priority areas of the Inclusive SA: State Disability Inclusion Plan 2019-2023, ensuring that Council provides and advocates on behalf of the community for fair and equitable access to services and facilities by people with a disability and their carers.

The Plan is developed in consultation with the community, including people with disabilities, service providers, Council officers and volunteers. From the information gathered, an action plan is created which demonstrates Council’s commitment to eliminating discrimination.

This Disability Access and Inclusion Plan ensures that the rights of people living with disability are upheld. People living with disability should be able to access and participate in all aspects of our society, including using mainstream services and programs. Social inclusion is fundamental to a person’s quality of life and critical to achieving positive life outcomes across all areas.
