Access at a Glance aims to support and influence positive change for local businesses and service providers by supporting them to;
- Promote their accessible features
- Increase their customer base and community recognition
- Engage in conversations about how to increase access and inclusion
Bathurst Regional Council recently engaged Social Futures to conduct Access at a Glance consultation sessions on Council owned facilities.
Following the consultation sessions, Council was provided with the accessibility stickers which are displayed to identify the facility’s accessible features.
Around 1 in 5 Australians have a disability and more than half of people aged 55 years and over have difficulties with mobility, sight and hearing. Applying simple strategies to improve customer service for people with disability can help ensure everyone can access information, services and supports.
