Funding to improve access for all

Six Bass Coast businesses and community organisations have received grants of up to $1000 to improve access for people with disability.

They applied for the funding through the 2019 Building Disability Inclusive Businesses and Community Organisations funding from the Building Inclusive Communities Program of RuralAccess, in partnership with Bass Coast Shire Council and the Department of Health and Human Services.

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari congratulated the recipients of the funding.

“These groups and businesses have taken the time to check their premises, programs and services to identify what barriers existed and what changes could be made to improve access and inclusion of people with disability,” Cr Tessari said.

“This small capital investment has big social benefits. When you provide access for all, you have a greater wellbeing and a more connected, participating community.

“It is great to see this focus on improving access and inclusion for people with disability in our community.”
