Equal Opportunity Commission Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

Plan
The Disability Access and Inclusion Plan was developed to ensure people with disabilities can access the services and facilities provided by the Equal Opportunity Commission.

Disability access and inclusion plan

The Equal Opportunity Commission has developed a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan in accordance with the requirements of the Disability Services Act 1993 (as amended).

The plan ensures people with disabilities, their families and carers are able to fully access the Commission's range of services, information and facilities.

The Commission's plan was updated in consultation with stakeholders and is available to the community.

The plan contains strategies the Commission will implement to address six outcomes:

  • Services
  • Events
  • Building and facilities
  • Information
  • Complaints mechanisms, and
  • Consultation processes.

For people with disabilities to have the same opportunities as others to participate in community life it is important that the services and facilities provided to the community address the access requirements.

The Commission is committed to developing and maintaining effective inclusive policies, practices and structures to ensure people with disabilities, their families and carers are able to fully access the range of the Commission’s services and facilities.

The Commission acknowledges its responsibilities with regard to the standards contained in State (Disability Services Act 1993 and Equal Opportunity Act 1984) and Commonwealth (Disability Discrimination Act 1992) legislation.
