Barrier removal is the goal but we can help you to distinguish between what must be done to comply with disability equality law and what can be done to not only achieve legal compliance but to enable meaningful participation and engagement with your business.

Missed Opportunities

Removing barriers = good business

More than 15% of the world's population has a disability, yet barriers affecting this group remain commonplace. Most businesses do not notice these barriers until a complaint arises, resulting in lost profit, a damaged reputation and a missed opportunity to engage with this growing market.

Focusing on What Matters

Identifying discriminatory barriers

Equality law can be complex and confusing. Some forms of discrimination are deemed acceptable (factual), others are deemed unacceptable (illegal), and some well-meaning attempts to benefit a particular group can even unintentionally create the very type of discrimination that should be avoided.

This complexity is often magnified in the context of disability, resulting in uncertainty that cuts into profits through missed opportunities, legal costs and inefficient or unnecessary modifications to products and services.

Reasonable accommodation is an essential part of the prohibition of disability discrimination and must be fulfilled to ensure legal compliance.

Compliance and Enhanced Participation
