People with disability often experience difficulty accessing information, facilities and services. Research has also shown that access and inclusion barriers are not exclusive to people with disability, and can be attributed to factors such as:
- living in rural or remote areas
- low literacy levels
- low socio-economic status
- age, and
- discrimination in relation to gender, race and culture.
The FPC is committed to delivering services to all people with disabilities, their families and carers. To facilitate this, the FPC has revised its Disability Access and Inclusion Plan and now invites public comment and feedback, which can be provided using the feedback form within the Plan.
The Plan is available upon request for those with special needs in alternative formats such as large print (hard copy), electronic format (disk or emailed), audio or Braille.
