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.
Disability Access and Inclusion Plans (DAIPs) Toolkit
Under the Disability Inclusion Act 2018 (SA), State authorities are required to develop their own Disability Access and Inclusion Plans (DAIPs). These are due to be completed by October 2020.
Below are the key documents developed by the Department of Human Services to assist State authorities develop and report on their DAIP:
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.
