Our Access and Inclusion Plan

What is the Access and Inclusion Plan?

The Disability Inclusion Act 2018 (SA) requires all local councils and State Government agencies to develop a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP). The Access and Inclusion Plan 2020-24: A brighter future for all, is Adelaide Hills Council's DAIP. It was adopted by Council on 27 January 2021.

The four themes

Our Access and Inclusion Plan focuses on the following themes of the State Disability Inclusion Plan 2019-2023:

  1. Inclusive communities for all
  2. Leadership and collaboration
  3. Accessible communities
  4. Learning and employment

Under each theme, our Plan sets out actions we will take between 2020 and 2024 to improve disability access and inclusion in our region, district and organisation.

The community consultation process

We developed our Plan in consultation with our community and key stakeholders, including residents with disability, their families and carers, relevant organisations, local service providers, Council Members, staff and volunteers.

The process involved two phases undertaken from September to December 2020:

Phase 1: Feedback to inform the development of a Provisional DAIP (October 2020)

Phase 2: Feedback on the Provisional DAIP (November-December 2020)

Tracking and reporting our progress

We are regularly monitoring our progress in implementing our Access and Inclusion Plan. We undertake regular checks on each action, in conjunction with our quarterly reporting. We also report progress annually to our CEO, Elected Members and Department of Human Services (DHS), describing what has been achieved in the reporting year.

Our first annual report on the implementation of our Plan (in 2020-2021) was provided to Council at their Ordinary Meeting held on 26 October 2021 (Item 13.1). If you would like a copy of this report contact Josh Spier on 8408 0579 or email jspier@ahc.sa.gov.au.
