The Shire of Peppermint Grove is committed to ensuring that the community is an accessible and inclusive community for people with disabilities, their families and carers.

The Shire of Peppermint Grove interprets an accessible and inclusive community as one in which people with a disability can access and are welcomed to participate in all Local Government functions, facilities and services (both in-house and contracted) in the same manner and with the same rights and responsibilities as other members of the community.

Disability Access in your Business

Businesses within the Shire of Peppermint Grove can do their bit to assist local people with disabilities and their families.

There are many ways that the business community can welcome people with disabilities both as employees and as customers.

Businesses have the potential to benefit substantially by improving customer service and considering the needs of all their consumers including people with disabilities in their business planning and development.
