ALL INCLUSIVE PHILOSPHY – Working with disabled people has shown us the importance of catering to people with a disability no matter how big or small.  We pride ourselves in our all inclusive property and the buildings have been purpose built to cater to people from all walks of life.  

PHILOSOPHY

The Fraser Coast RV Park believes that disabled people should have:

  • The same rights, choice and opportunity of access to services as non-disabled people.
  • Access to services in as inclusive a way as possible. This includes accessibility to the Fraser Coast RV Park’s Laundry, Wallaby Wash House shower and toilet, Bush Kitchen, and Mango Lodge.
  • Access to services in as inclusive a way as possible.

PURPOSE

The aims of this policy is to ensure that Fraser Coast RV Park meets its statutory obligations in providing disabled people with access to the Fraser Coast RV Park and its facilities.

For the purpose of this policy, the term “disability” has the same meaning given in the DDA,  and the Equality Act: ‘a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities’ This includes, but is not limited to: sensory impairments, learning disabilities, mental illness, clinically recognised severe disfigurements, cancer, HIV/Aids, progressive conditions even at an early stage, conditions which are characterised by a number of cumulative effects such as pain or fatigue and a past history of disability.
