Disability Legislation Reform Consultation

18 Apr
27 Apr


The Disability Services Act 1993 regulates State-led disability services and related matters in WA, including Local Government Access and Inclusion Plans. Since its commencement in 1993, significant change has occurred in the disability sector, prompting this review.

WALGA is partnering with the Department of Communities to deliver two consultation sessions for Local Governments.

For more information please contact Alina Hobson, WALGA A/Senior Policy Advisor, Community by email at Alina Hobson.    

Consultation closes on 10 June 2023. Further information can be found here.
