About Disability Confidence Canberra

Disability Confidence Canberra is an important new initiative that provides information and tools to organisations, groups, businesses and employers who want to be more inclusive and accessible for people who are ageing or have disability.

Disability Confidence Canberra is a speaking and education program for businesses, organisations and local community groups to equip them with information on disability, facts on disability employment, and practical tools to become disability confident.

It is a joint project with the ACT Inclusion Council, ACT Government, Nican, and Eric Martin and Associates.

Disability Confidence Canberra has already presented and engaged with Commonwealth agencies, community groups and local non-government organisations. It is a great way for organisations and their members to increase disability awareness and learn practical steps they can make to promote better opportunities for people with disability in the ACT.
