Glenelg Shire Accessible Eating Guide

Consultation has concluded

Consultation has now closed. We are currently completing sight audits and collating information into a printable format. We will announce when this has been completed.

Glenelg Shire Council is updating the accessible eating guide in order to assist people with disabilities, their families and carers by giving an indication of disability access into and within eateries across the Shire. We encourage local eateries to get involved with the accessible eating guide and to work towards accessibility for all patrons.

Consultation closes 5pm, Friday 17th March 2017

Background

The Portland Accessible Eating Guide was developed in 2010 as a means to assist people with a disability to make decisions on eateries based on ease of disability access. In 2016 Rural Access were successful in receiving council funding to update the guide and extend the coverage to eateries across the entire Glenelg Shire so that all members of the community can have an indication of the most suitable eateries based on ease of disability access and assistance.

Benefits of the project

The Glenelg Shire encourages local business owners/eateries to include their business in the Accessible Eating Guide which will then be available to all members of the community and visitors. This information will allow individuals with a disability and their family or carers to plan functions and trips that will be accommodating for everyone.

The Accessible Eating Guide assessment tool will also help to broaden understanding of access and inclusion in the community and ways in which local business can improve their venues or service to create an inclusive Glenelg Shire community.

Project Impacts

Due to the community driven nature of the eating guide it is not mandatory for all eateries to participate. As a result Glenelg Shire Council cannot guarantee that the eating guide is a detailed representation of all the eateries in the area.
