There are also many legislative requirements for buildings, transport and public spaces that prevent design problems stopping people with a disability and wheelchair users from accessing these spaces.

Workplace disability awareness

Everyone has different levels of contact with people with disability. As a result, your employees may be unsure how to interact with customers who have a physical disability, which can result in misunderstandings or anxiety for both parties.

Our disability awareness presentations will:

  • encourage your employees to focus on the customer as an individual, and not on the disability
  • promote an understanding of physical disabilities
  • foster an understanding of the ways in which the needs of people with a physical disability can be met.

Part inspirational and part educational, it provides a down-to-earth look at the best language to use when speaking with someone who has a disability and how best to engage them in conversation with respect and dignity.

If your organisation is committed to equity for both staff and customers, this program provides practical and useful support.
