This Missed Business Guide is an initiative of the Macarthur Access Group for Inclusive Communities (MAGIC) and aims to help you, the small business owner, understand how to improve access and inclusion. Small changes in your business can lead to significant economic, commercial and social benefits for your business and for the lives of people with disability.
The MAGIC Project commenced in late 2013 as a response to consultations with families of people with disability which 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 is encouraging businesses across Macarthur to apply to become a place of MAGIC, and through doing so commit to the MAGIC Charter, which you can find on page 4.
This resource provides information that can help your business become a place of MAGIC. It starts with a checklist to help you identify where you are currently at in relation to access and inclusion. It includes information about the benefits of improving access, your responsibilities, and lots of tips on how to improve access and inclusion at your business.
There is also information about who you can contact for support.
