Ability Links

In Australia, 4.2 million people or 20% of the population have a reported disability. Around 1/3 of the population are either personally affected by a disability or directly involved as a family member or carer. Together with their friends and family, the number of people affected by a disability is bigger still and every one of them is a potential customer!

Being accessible and inclusive represents a significant opportunity for any business.

Ability Links NSW Coordinators, know as Linkers, work closely with people living with a disability, their families and carers to support them to fulfil their goals, hopes and dreams. They do this through linking people into their community. Linkers also support businesses to become more aware of accessibility and how it is not only good for the community but 'good for business' and ultimately #great4gosford !

When talking about 'improving access', it's easy to think only in terms of installing ramps, toilets and other fixtures. But one of the simplest and cheapest solutions is to change the way you think about customer service for people living with a disability.

People with disability are very loyal customers when they identify a business that they like - with good products, fair prices, great customer service AND clear accessibility. They, along with their families, carers and friends are more likely to be regular loyal customers.

Better accessibility also benefits the many older people living in our community as well as young families.

Ability Links would be happy to come and speak with any business to discuss accessibility. Can you really afford not to?

Ability Links Gosford is located at Suite A/201 Mann Street, Gosford. Please contact Marni on 4905 0749, or email at marni.walkerden @vinnies.org.au
