The Town of Gawler, in collaboration with the Barossa, Light and Mallala Councils, is developing a Regional Disability Access and Inclusion Plan.
The aim of the Plan is to improve access for all and increase the number of opportunities for people with a disability that live, work, play, volunteer and visit in Gawler and the surrounding Council areas.
This Plan will outline proactive strategies to enhance Council policies, practices, services and facilities to improve access for people with a disability. In order to respond to the aspirations and needs of people living with disability, community participation and input into the process is crucial.
A series of community workshops were held in each of the participating Council areas. The Gawler workshops took place in August 2016. A draft plan is currently being developed and will be available for community feedback soon.
