The MAGIC Access Group for Inclusive Communities (MAGIC) Project commenced in response to consultations with people with a disability and their families who identified challenges accessing services, businesses and the broader community.
The work of MAGIC is underpinned by the rights of all people to access and be included in a community that respects and accepts difference.
The MAGIC project aims to help the business owner, understand how to improve access and inclusion. Small changes in a business can lead to significant economic, commercial and social benefits for the business owner and for the lives of people with disability.
Sector Connect Incorporated is a Not for Profit originally funded up until the 30th of June 2018 by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, Ageing Disability and Home Care to manage the MAGIC Project. The MAGIC Project was originally known as the Macarthur Access Group for Inclusive Communities (MAGIC). The project was informed by stakeholder consultation which included people living with disability, Local Councils (Camden, Campbelltown and Wollondilly), Ability Links, Western Sydney University, State Government representatives and other Disability Services in the Macarthur Region. The 'M' in MAGIC originally stood for 'Macarthur' and was changed in 2018 to stand for 'MAGIC" in recognition of the regional partnership work so far to move to a more national approach.
