Sutherland Shire Accessible Local Business Awards
Sutherland Shire Accessible Local Business Awards was introduced in 2017. This award recognises the efforts of the business community to be inclusive to the whole community with the provision of equal access and delivery of services.
The Award is sponsored by Sutherland Shire Council’s Access Committee and is open to all businesses located in the Sutherland Shire Local Government Area.
Businesses can self-nominate or be nominated by a member of the community.
Examples of improvement of access include:
- Providing disability awareness training to staff;
- Providing signage to indicate that your business is inclusive and welcoming to all;
- Developing creative solutions to overcome access challenges in rental premises.
Winners demonstrate that creating an inclusive community is not always about physical access, it is also about being flexible, responsive and offering opportunities for the whole community to access products and services.
2018 Award entries will open in late July.
