Disability Access and Inclusion Plan
The City of Bayswater’s Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2016-2020 was developed to ensure people with a disability have equity of access and inclusion to functions, facilities and services.
One of the DAIP's strategies listed under ‘Outcome Area 7 – Employment’ is to "Support local businesses to develop their access awareness, and improve accessibility of people with disability in their workforce."
Workforce diversty benefits
Improved access and inclusion has significant benefits for business staff and customers. The Australian Network on Disability has launched a video illustrating the business case for the inclusion of people with disability in all aspects of business - as employees, customers and stakeholders. The video highlights the current rates of disability in Australia, and encourages businesses to recognise people with disability as valuable potential employees and customers.
