Become an Invisible Disabilities Friendly Business
Through becoming an Invisible Disabilities friendly business, you are joining a growing movement towards making the world a safer, kinder place and in the process, you will increase your client base with people who appreciate what you do.
In Australia there are over 5 MILLION PEOPLE who suffer from invisible disabilities. Frequently people with invisible disabilities find it extremely difficult to communicate their needs to those in the community who may be able to assist them. Consequently, they often feel isolated and afraid to go out.
Overseas there is a surge of support from large and small companies realising the advantages to their business of supporting all disabilities. Most people know someone or have a family member with a condition requiring support and are choosing to support inclusive businesses.
AN OBLIGATION NOT A CHOICE – Why mutual recognition matters
Invisible disabilities are not immediately obvious making it harder for organisations to fulfil their legal obligations to comply with anti-discrimination laws. This can lead to loss of business, unintentional injury to your staff or clients, public condemnation and litigation.
