Accessible and Inclusive Toolkits

Inclusive SA has developed four toolkits to support South Australian government agencies and local councils to look at accessibility and inclusion differently. The toolkits are a starting point for ideas and strategies addressing barriers and promoting positive actions to assist with delivering the economic and social benefits of a more inclusive state.

Engagement and Consultation with People Living with Disability toolkit

Accessible Communication toolkit

Accessible Wayfinding and Signage toolkit

Accessible and Inclusive Community Events toolkit

Disability Access and Inclusion Reporting

The Disability Inclusion Act 2018 (SA) requires State authorities to report to the Chief Executive of the Department of Human Services on or before 31 October each year on the operation of its disability access and inclusion plan for the previous financial year.

The Act also requires the Chief Executive of the Department of Human Services to prepare a report for the Minister for Human Services on or before 31 December each year summarising the reports received from State authorities. This report will be combined with the annual report on the State Disability Inclusion Plan.

The Minister for Human Services will table the combined annual report in both Houses of Parliament.

The Department of Human Services, on behalf of the South Australian Government, will use the information in the reports against disability access and inclusion plans and the State Disability Inclusion Plan to report against the National Disability Strategy.
