City of Bunbury rolls out accessible events trailer

City of Bunbury Council has joined forces with Enable WA to further enhance a community resource aimed at increasing accessibility at local events.

The local disability support provider manages an accessible events trailer and accepted a donation from the Council of two signs that promote the popular communication boards.

A resource that can be used free of charge for events across Bunbury, the trailer was previously also donated to Enable WA by the Council and is jam-packed with accessible items to enhance events.

The boards use alternative and augmented communication symbols and, for the first time in local government history, were available to download at Council’s recent SkyFest and Christmas in the City events.

Council says the A-frame signs, along with printed copies of generic event communication boards, are an added boost for the trailer and will help promote the boards, while also providing the community with information on how to access them.

The trailer holds an array of accessible resources including kerb ramps, grass matting, light weight wheelchairs, wheelchair signage and a gazebo.

Community members can book the accessible events trailer online here, while Council’s communication boards can be accessed here.
