Did you know that over two million people of working age in Australia are living with a disability? 

And yet, only 45% of employers in healthcare, social and education services sectors believe that their organisation is equipped to employ them.

What Does ‘Disability’ Cover?

Disability can include (but is not limited) to the following:

  • Total or partial loss of a body part, or its function;
  • Mental, psychological, or sensory impairment or disorder;
  • Learning impairment or disorder;
  • Medical conditions such as HIV or Hepatitis C that have the potential to cause disfigurement, disability, or malformation.

It is vital that your workplace allows a person living with a disability to work just as someone without a disability would be able to.

Many of the restrictions faced by people with disability arise because of society’s outdated and narrow ways of thinking about disability. A refined model of thinking could conceive of disability as the result of an interaction between a non-inclusive society and its individuals (Australian Network on Disability 2018).
