Good Access makes Good Business sense

Friday, 23 February, 2018

One in five people have a disability. If you’re a business owner that is 20 percent of potential customers you may be failing to accommodate.

Strathbogie, along with Alpine, Mansfield, Murrindindi, Benalla, Wangaratta, Mitchell, Indigo, Moira, Greater Shepparton and Towong Shire Councils, have partnered with Nexus Primary Health to create the Good Access = Good Business program.

What is good access? It is about removing physical or social barriers that prevent customers from finding your business, moving around easily and receiving good service.

The program takes businesses through a checklist to identify changes that can be made to their facilities to improve accessibility for people living with a disability.

Dan Capobianco, local photographer and co-owner of Mister+Lady, developed the logo design for the program and has since evaluated his business’ accessibility.

"This program isn't about catching you out on what you aren't doing, it's about recognising and celebrating what you are doing and finding out how you can do more," he said.
