Goodstart Bankstown secures Zero Barriers Business Excellence Award
Goodstart Early Learning Bankstown, an early childhood education and care service which specialises in early intervention and giving each child the best start in life regardless of abilities, has been awarded a Zero Barriers Business Excellence Award.
Zero Barriers was developed by The Multicultural Network in 2017 as a free business and service support project that aims to eliminate barriers for people with disabilities when shopping, using services or participating in activities in their local communities.
The Awards give an opportunity to businesses and services to be recognised for the changes and adjustments they have made to be more inclusive of their whole community in the categories of:
- Service, social action and inclusion
- Physical access
- Communication and marketing
Zero Barriers works with over 200 businesses, clubs and services to educate about disability inclusion, sharing tips for low cost or no-cost solutions to become more accessible to their customers with disability.
Speaking on behalf of Goodstart Bankstown Director Alison Kiel said the service takes pride in its inclusivity and accessibility, thanking Zero Barriers for the recognition.
“We have access to early intervention specialists who work with us and families and give them strategies to practice with their child in everyday activities and routines,” she said.
“We’ve had children attending in wheelchairs and are extremely wheelchair friendly with ramps, disabled parking, a big yard and more.”
