Accessibility and inclusion information for people with disability
The City of Karratha is committed to building inclusive and connected communities.
Guided by our Disability Access and Inclusion Plan, we work with the community to ensure all people have equal access to services and facilities across our City.
The Plan is part of an ongoing process of extensive community collaboration as we continue to work with the community toward achieving the aspirational goal of universal inclusion and accessibility.
