Peter Mac has developed a Disability Action Plan (DAP).
The DAP will achieve its action items within the three-year cycle. The DAP provides a framework for Peter Mac to plan the elimination, as far as possible, of disability discrimination from the provision of its goods, services and facilities.
The DAP covers the four outcome areas of section 38 of the Disability Act 2006:
- Reducing barriers to persons with a disability accessing goods, services and facilities
- Reducing barriers to persons with a disability obtaining and maintaining employment
- Promoting inclusion and participation in the community of persons with a disability
- Achieving tangible changes in attitudes and practices which discriminate against persons with a disability
Peter Mac sought feedback on the draft plan during April, May and June 2019.
This was achieved through consultation with our consumer advisory committee, through consultation with key stakeholders in the disability sector, through a public forum and through consultation with staff via our internal website. People suggested areas for improvement which was used to prioritise actions and inform the final plan. In particular, people wanted us to ensure our documents were accessible by all, and that we responded to temporary disabilities caused by cancer.
