Online disability awareness training is now available for all businesses and community organisations in Cardinia Shire, Australia. 

The free online training ‘You Me Us’ is designed to ensure Cardinia Shire continues to be accessible and inclusive for the community.

The training focusses on attitudes, language, communication and access through a series of videos. A certificate of completion is also presented at the end of the training.

Cardinia Shire Council Mayor Councillor Brett Owen encouraged all businesses and community groups to take part in the free online training.

“We have around 4,000 residents living with a disability. As a council, we all have a role in making Cardinia Shire more accessible and inclusive for everyone,” he said.

“We’re committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive and accessible community, as outlined in our Disability, Access and Inclusion Policy and Action Plan.

“Council’s Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee is committed to making Cardinia Shire welcoming, accessible and inclusive to all and welcome this training being available across our community.

“Businesses and community groups can also help achieve a more inclusive community by increasing the availability and uptake of disability awareness training.

“We hope businesses, community groups, volunteers and sporting clubs take up this offer and take part in the training initiative.”
