Disability Services

The Shire of Narrogin is committed to ensuring that the community is accessible and inclusive for people with disabilities, their families and carers.

The Shire interprets an accessible and inclusive community as one in which all Council functions, facilities and services (both in-house and contracted) are as open, available and accessible to people with disabilities as for other people in the community, providing them with the same rights and responsibilities as other people.

The Shire is aware of the fact that as it is a regional centre, residents of the shires of Cuballing, Wickepin, Wagin and Williams (all located within a 50 kilometre radius of Narrogin) commute regularly to Narrogin for work, shopping and leisure activities and that the Town’s accessibility and inclusiveness is important to the communities of these surrounding local governments.

The Shire:

  • recognises that people with disabilities are valued members of the community who make a variety of contributions to local, social, economic and cultural life;
  • believes that a community that recognises its diversity and supports the participation and inclusion of all its members makes for a richer community life;
  • believes that people with disabilities, their families and carers should be supported to remain living and participating in the community:
  • is committed to consulting with people with disabilities, their families and carers,and the community in general, to ensure that barriers to access and inclusion are appropriately addressed;
  • Is committed to supporting local community groups and other relevant organisations to facilitate the inclusion of people with disabilities through access to information, services and facilities in the community; and
  • is committed to ensuring that its agents and contractors work towards the desired outcomes in the Town’s DAIP

Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP)

In line with the requirements of the Western Australian Disability Services Act 1993, the Shire of Narrogin has a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP).

The Plan reflects a commitment to making Narrogin an inclusive and accessible regional Wheatbelt town for residents and visitors with disabilities alike and expresses our commitment to the principles and objectives of Western Australia’s Disability Services Act 1993.

The Plan embodies a review of the original 2007-2011 DAIP and combines past and current strategies and policies and incorporated feedback from community consultations.

 We continue to rely on the community’s feedback about our services and facilities and welcome comment on our progress.
