Good Access is Good Business - YouMeUs

YouMeUs have developed a short series of videos outlining how businesses can adapt their business to be more accessible and inclusive for all to attract more customers. The vision is to promote an understanding of diversity in the community, challenge public perceptions of stereotypes, highlight the abilities of people with disabilities and support the development of inclusive communities.

Making improvements to your building, attitude and knowledge can potentially increase turnover by approximately 25% compared to businesses that are non-accessible.  Changes can be as simple as clearing aisles and training staff, or getting a portable ramp.

This series of short videos below have been developed for businesses to learn how they can adapt and attract more customers with a disability, focusing on Access, Attitude, Communication and Rights.

Rights - Assistance Animals

Attitude - Catering for everyone

Communication
