ACCESSIBILITY

The ACO is committed to making our information and services available to people with disabilities.  In keeping with our current Disability Action Plan, we aim to fulfil three key roles:

• As a provider of information - introduce just policy and procedures into our core business practice; 

• As an arts presenter, venue hirer and provider of services - strive for equity of access to all performances and events; and 

• As an employer - develop skills with staff through training to communicate effectively with people with disability whilst providing a work place of equal opportunity.
