ACCAN values disability access. We want to be a model in this field, for other not-for-profits, industry and government. ACCAN will register our 2019-2021 Disability Action Plan with the Australian Human Rights Commission’s Register of Disability Discrimination Act Action Plans.

Through enacting our Disability Action Plan, ACCAN aims to:


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

  • Improve access, inclusion and participation for people with disability in ACCAN as a whole.

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

  • Be a model for how other organisations, especially not-for-profit organisations, can improve access for people with disability, and support industry to increase access for consumers with disability.

ACCAN is proud that people with disability have always been considered an important focus of our organisation. 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.
