Melbourne Providing Disability Awareness Training
Travellers Aid Australia, in conjunction with William Angliss Institute, has developed an interactive online disability awareness training program www.dat.org.au for business owners and their staff. The training is designed to give business operators the confidence to communicate with anyone who has a disability, whether it is in their workplace or in their everyday life.
Travellers Aid CEO Elias Lebbos says, "Our organization promotes independence by enabling people to engage and participate in everyday life. In our experience, many of the accessibility issues that people face can be rectified through increased awareness, through training and through service providers having the confidence to communicate in a meaningful way with their customers who live with a disability." Being active and staying engaged will greatly improve everyone's quality of life and this is what Travellers Aid Australia is all about.
