Access for people with a disability
Could your business be missing out on customers because you don’t provide the access they require?
In Gippsland, 32,500 people have a disability and will decide where to shop, do business or visit tourist destinations based on how easy they are to access and the quality of service provided.
When you add the number of older residents who may have difficulties with mobility, sight and hearing the number rises considerably.
We worked with five other local government areas to produce the regional Good Access is Good Business guide, to assist businesses to improve access for all customers. The guide includes simple steps to improve your accessibility and advises business of their legal obligations.
