Disability Action Plan

This is the first Disability Action Plan (DAP) developed for East Wimmera Health Service (EWHS) for members of the communities we serve and for the people we employ.

To assist us in the development of our DAP we have undertaken extensive research including, but not limited to reviewing DAP’s developed by a variety of other organisations, developing and distributing a community questionnaire and holding discussions with our Community Consultation Committees.

Our DAP will enable us to assist those with a disability who are employed or serviced by EWHS by identifying issues, developing an action plan and monitoring its progress. This process will also assist us in understanding the value of those with a disability and the part they can play in EWHS.

The DAP will initially be developed for the period November 2010 to June 2012. It will be reviewed in May 2012 and developed for a further 4 years to end in 2016 in line with our Strategic Plan which is currently being developed for the 2011-2016 period.

Thank you to all of the staff and community members who have been involved in the research and preparation of the DAP, it is much appreciated.
