Watch out for information about the Better Access Better Business Guide (formerly Missed Business). 

The City of Stonnington celebrated International Day of People with Disability by inviting community members with lived experiences of disability to harness their digital creativity and tell their story. We asked the question What Makes You YOU!

This is the result:

Hosting accessible events

A guide for organisers has been developed by the Meetings and Events Industry of Australia in collaboration with the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC). The guide can be downloaded here .

This guide is designed to help those responsible for organising events and contains information and advice on how to make events accessible for people of all abilities, whether they are presenters, sponsors or participants.
