ACCAN values disability access. We want to be a model in this field, for other not-for-profits, industry and government.

ACCAN's Disability Action Plan 2015-18* is registered with the Human Rights Commission's Register of Disability Discrimination Act Action Plans.

*ACCAN's Disability Action Plan 2015-17 has been extended until the end of 2018 while the ACCAN Disability Action Plan undergoes review.  It is envisioned that the ACCAN Disability Action Plan 2019-2021 will be available March 2019. 

ACCAN is proud that people with disability have always been considered an important focus of our organisation. Prior to the launch of this Disability Action Plan, ACCAN already demonstrated best practice in a number of ways.

ACCAN’s Disability Action Plan aims to:

  • Eliminate any discrimination based on disability, including against members or employees

  • Comply with the Disability Discrimination Act and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

  • Improve access, inclusion and participation for people with disability to ACCAN

  • Be a model for how other organisations, especially not-for-profit organisations, can improve access for people with disability

ACCAN hopes that this Disability Action Plan will challenge us as an organisation to continue to provide best practice access, and to find further opportunities to improve.
