Good Access is Great for Business
The City of Bayswater Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2016-2020 is the City's plan to ensure that people with disability have equity of access and inclusion to functions, facilities and services provided. One of the DAIP's strategies is to "Support local businesses to develop their access awareness, and improve accessibility of people with disability in their workforce".
Improved access and inclusion has significant benefits for businesses:
"Customers in the modern day are not homogenous and when organisations go out of their way to meet the needs of their diverse customers – whether they be women, identify as LGBTI or have a disability – the research shows that these organisations are rewarded with stalwart supporters who return for repeat business and actively campaign within their communities on behalf of that organisation." (Missing out: The business case for customer diversity - Australian Human Rights Commission).
Please see below a list of links and resources to assist your business to provide equity of access to all in the community.
Local Businesses that provide cultural, sporting or recreational activities as their core service are encouraged to apply to showcase their services at the City's annual community event, Have a Go Day, and participate in free access and inclusion training.
