Disability Access and Inclusion Plan


GWHCC Clients with Disabilities

Goldfields Women’s Health Care Centre clients are treated first and foremost as women.

A disability is any continuing condition that restricts everyday activities. The Disability Services Act (1993) defines “disability” as meaning a disability:

which is attributable to an intellectual, psychiatric , cognitive, neurological, sensory or physical impairment or a combination of those impairments;

  • which is permanent or likely to be permanent;
  • which may or may not be of a chronic or episodic nature; and
  • which results in substantially reduced capacity of the person for communication, social interaction, learning or mobility and a need for continuing support services.

Disabilities can result in a person having a substantially reduced capacity for communication, social interaction, learning or mobility and a need for continuing support services in daily life.

Planning for better access and Inclusion

The GWHCA undertakes to increase the number of women with a disability accessing our services. We plan for better access and inclusion to enable us to deliver quality care.

The GWHCA Inc. completed a disability access audit in August 2008 carried out by Peter Jones, Architect, in collaboration with the Independent Living Centre WA.

The GWHCA Inc. completed a review and upgrade of the website in February 2008, carried out by Reynolds Graphics as per the recommendations of the website accessibility report compiled in January 2008.
