Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated

Disability Action Plan

The Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated recognizes that it is unlawful to treat a person with a disability less favourably than a person who does not have a disability, in the same or similar circumstances. Such discrimination is covered by the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Equal Opportunity Act 1995.

The Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated embraces the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 premise that:

  • People with disabilities are part of our diverse communities
  • People with disabilities, their families and carers have a right to participate as fully as possible in the life of our communities
  • People with disabilities are the primary source of information regarding the physical, social and cultural barriers to their participation in their local community

The Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated will develop and implement a Disability Action Plan which will focus on those physical, social & cultural barriers which create a handicap for people with disabilities to be able to enjoy sports and recreation at Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated.

Basic elements of the plan will include:

  • Education of Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated members
  • Education of visitors to the Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated
  • Identifying specific issues at our Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated that can make life unnecessarily difficult or complicated for people with disabilities
  • Develop strategies to deal with these issues

Specific elements of the plan will include:

  • Clearly defined disabled car parking areas at Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated
  • Disabled toilet facilities
  • Inclusion Policy reviewed regularly

This action plan and the action plan checklist will be reviewed annually by the Board of Management of Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated to ensure that Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated looks at ways to improve accessibility and meets the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.
