How it works
Make an enquiry
Our team is ready to answer any questions you may have. We will also send through a short survey to help us gather some initial information on your business, to help us plan our first workshop and how we can best achieve your goals.
Host a workshop
We will host a one-hour workshop that is tailored to you, with a focus on building the capacity of your business to support employees with a disability, and how you can grow to become a leader in your industry.
This includes a customised business analysis to understand your business and its objectives, as well as exploring how you can become more ‘disability confident’. Examples may include removing recruitment barriers and improving work practices and accessibility.
Receive our recommendations
We will provide a targeted evaluation with recommendations that are tailored to your business, which includes practical steps on how to create employment opportunities for people with a disability.
These recommendations are not only helpful in ensuring you are supporting employees – you can also gain valuable ideas on how you could make your business more inclusive for customers with a disability too.
Our team is also available to provide ongoing support, if you require any further advice or assistance.
