The Shire of Dumbleyung is currently in the process of reviewing its Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) alongside the Disability Service Commission of WA. The review is now inclusive of outcome seven which is a requirement under the Western Australia Disability Services Act 1993 (amended 2004). Amongst the review, the Shire has now based each outcome on a strategy that we strive to achieve. We are seeking feedback from the community on areas where we can further improve access to services, facilities and information for people with disabilities.The closing date for comments will be Tuesday 6th November 2018. You can submit your comments online here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DBFZ9PT
You will likely receive the invitation to comment form in your mail box this week or you can print and complete the reply paid form here
Community Assisted Transport Scheme (CATS)
The car has arrived and the drivers are ready to go! Following successful application to the Bain Estate, Helen Gooding and Bob Bray, in conjunction with the shire, have been working to get the CATS to the point of being ready to operate. The scheme pairs volunteer drivers with a client to ensure that services outside of our area can be accessed. All it costs the client is a $50 fee in addition to their PATS reimbursement which goes to ensuring the scheme remains viable in the future.
Who can use the service?
The service is available to ALL residents of the shire;
- For journeys to specialist medical appointments; or
- Allied health appointments where the service is not available locally; or
- For compassionate reasons;
- Clients under the age of 18 shall be required to have a guardian accompany them on the journey.
