Welcome to the ACT Inclusion Council. The ACT Inclusion Council is a Canberra group of business, government and community leaders that work in partnership with the community to develop initiatives that value and engage people with disability as customers, suppliers, employees and employers in business.
It is the conduit between business and government, supporting new and innovative projects and events that showcase business opportunities in the disability sector and create employment opportunities for people with disability.

Each year, the ACT Chief Minister’s Inclusion Awards acknowledges the outstanding achievement of business, organisations and individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to welcome, encourage and support people with disability in their workplace, business and community. The Awards will align with International Day for People with Disability in early December and will acknowledge inclusive leaders across five categories:
- Recognising people with disability who are leaders in inclusion
- Excellence in inclusion for mainstream services
- Excellence in inclusive specialist disability services
- Excellence in enabling inclusion through supporting people with disability
- Innovation in design
An overarching Award for Excellence is then selected from award recipients. Last year this award went to The Dandelion Program for its innovative IT career development program.
