Western Australia has a beautiful, diverse, and supportive environment that provides material, aesthetic and spiritual benefits.

These values should be regarded as an essential part of the livelihood and quality of life of all Western Australians, including people with disabilities.

People with disabilities are among visitors to parks and recreation facilities managed by DBCA. They are among people seeking information from department public counters, and are included among departmental employees.

Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 

The department adopted its first Disability Services Plan (now called the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan) in 1995 to address the barriers for people with disability wanting to access the department’s services and facilities. Over the years the agency has achieved some significant accessibility improvements such as the ‘Access for More’ track, which is a part of the Cape to Cape Track in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.

DBCA's new plan will focus on ensuring that the department continues to provide a high standard of access and inclusion.

The Disability Access and Inclusion Plan now includes Outcome 7 "People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to obtain and maintain employment with the department".

The plan is available in alternative formats on request by emailing enquiries@dbca.wa.gov.au.
