Business and government

Creating a truly welcoming and inclusive Western Australia requires a community-wide commitment that involves people with disability, their families and carers. The private and public sectors can take deliberate steps to improve access, inclusion and participation.

In this section you will find information and resources for business and government to support their efforts to make that happen.

Business

There are many ways the business community can welcome people with disability and experience the benefits. Employers who are inclusive in the way that they recruit staff have access to a wider talent pool. 

Business can take advantage of the inclusion of people with disability as a new market by improving customer service and considering the needs of their consumers, including people with disability, in their business planning and development. 

Government

The Disability Services Commission works in partnership with state and local governments on a range of projects and initiatives, and also monitors the development and implementation of Disability Access and Inclusion Plans.

This section contains information to assist public authorities and government agencies to improve access and inclusion so all members of the community can participate equally.
