Improved access and inclusion has significant benefits for businesses.
Good access is great for business
The City of Bayswater Access and Inclusion Plan 2020 – 2024 builds upon the work already achieved by the City in its efforts to improve physical access to buildings and facilities, ensure people with disability can access services and events, are provided with information in their preferred format on request, can participate in consultations and provide feedback to Council as well as continuing to progress employment initiatives.
The City of Bayswater, in partnership with People With Disability WA, invites businesses to a FREE 'Accessible Baysie Business Breakfast':
Date: Monday 19 October
Time: 7am to 9am
Venue: City of Bayswater Civic Centre - 61 Broun Avenue, Morley
This FREE business breakfast event provides support for local small and medium-sized businesses to become more welcoming and inclusive for people with disability.
Over 4 million people in Australia have or will acquire some form of disability in their lifetime. That's 1 in 5 people. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2016 Census, it was estimated 2,888 people living within the City of Bayswater reported a need for assistance due to a disability. This means that if your business isn’t accessible to people with disability, you are missing out on paying customers.

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.
