You could be missing out on potential customers. In Australia, one in five people experience disability.

Like everyone else, people living with a disability want to buy goods and services. But this can be hard if your business isn't easy to access.

Creating an accessible environment within your business can help to:

  • broaden your customer base
  • increase economic benefits.

Accessibility pays dividends and makes good business sense. For more information, visit YouMeUs.
