Ally Dench, Executive Director Community Services & Corporate Support, believes that “The DIAP will go a long way towards changing the perceptions people may have about people with a disability and improve access for them. Wollondilly Shire Council’s DIAP will begin to focus more on ‘inclusion’ by integrating the DIAP into our regulatory requirements. We will focus on improving accessibility across Council events, projects and infrastructure.”
