Council invites businesses to disability access forum
Business owners and operators have been invited to a Council-organised forum about improving access and inclusion for people with disability.
Council director Ms Julie Vaughan said the focus of the free Access and Inclusion Forum was to provide simple strategies that could make a big difference to people with a disability.
"People with disabilities are an important part of our community and it is vital that all businesses and services on the Coast are as accessible and inclusive as possible," Ms Vaughan said.
"Our new forums will provide key information and simple changes that can have a big impact.
"All event attendees will be given a new resource kit, Making Access and Inclusion Your Business, and will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to welcome a range of new customers to their businesses."
Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said removing barriers for people with disabilities would help to make the Central Coast a better place to live, work and visit.
"I'd encourage our local business owners and operators to attend one of our free forums to ensure your business or service is open to as many people as possible."
The forum at Woy Woy will be held on Thursday, February 13, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm at the CWA hall in The Boulevarde, Woy Woy.
