The Shire is seeking new members for its Community Access and Inclusion Reference Group (CAIRG), a community based reference group for consultation on access and inclusion issues within the region.

The role of the CAIRG is to identify barriers to people accessing and being involved with Shire services, events, buildings, facilities, information, communication, employment and opportunities to participate in the community, and to develop strategies aimed at reducing these barriers.

Shire staff attend the quarterly meetings and consult with the CAIRG on various projects and developments including Shire infrastructure, services and facilities, equipment, events, training, information and communication.

Shire Community Development Officer, Katie Taylor said the CAIRG is a useful forum for information sharing, providing feedback and advice on access and inclusion matters.

“The group aims to improve the social wellbeing of our community, creating a welcoming and inclusive place to live, play, work and visit.”

CAIRG membership is open any members of the public who have interest in access and inclusion for people with a disability, seniors, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal Australians and other groups that may experience barriers to access and inclusion. 

The first CAIRG meeting for 2018 will be held:

Wednesday 21 March

10 – 11.30am

Shire of Augusta Margaret River Civic Administration Centre
