People with disability, their families and carers are being invited to have their say about a new respite center to be located in the Wheatbelt region.
The new center is part of the State Government's $12million budget commitment to build five new out-of-home respite centers across metropolitan and regional Western Australia.
Disability Services Minister Simon O'Brien said community forums would be held to explore respite needs, community capacity and local issues to help inform the development of the service.
"The Disability Services Commission is hosting consultation forums in Narrogin, Northam and Merredin," Mr O'Brien said.
"We are now seeking ideas from people with disability, their families and carers to ensure the service model reflects what the community wants and needs."
The forums will be held at:
Narrogin - 11am-12.30pm, Monday, August 16
St Matthews Church Hall, corner of Park and Earl streets, Narrogin
Northam - 11am-12.30pm, Monday, August 30
Bridgley Community Center, 91 Wellington Street, Northam
Merredin - 9am-10.30am, Tuesday, August 31
