The Freedom of Information Act 1992 (WA) ("the FOI Act") creates a general right of access to documents held by all state and local government agencies. The FOI Act requires agencies to make available details about the kind of information they hold and enables people to ensure that personal information held by government agencies about them is accurate, complete, up to date and not misleading.

It is the aim of the Department of Communities (Communities) to make information available promptly, for the least possible cost, and wherever possible documents will be provided outside the Freedom of Information process.

Further information, including information on receipt of applications, fees and charges, rights of review and types of documents can be found on our Information Statement.
