Spinal Life Australia is offering a free Disability Awareness Training workshop for businesses in the Moreton Bay Region on May 24.

The workshop at Caboolture aims to raise awareness of the needs of people with a disability and how catering to these needs can create opportunities for businesses.

According to Spinal Life Australia, there are 4.4 million Australians living with disability and accessible venues earn 20-25 per cent more revenue than non-accessible businesses.

The workshop is a chance to hear from accessibility experts Dane Cross and Brendan Somerville, who will share their first-hand experiences of living with a disability and how businesses can help.

Dane and Brendan will also provide solutions for making venues and services more inclusive for everyone – and how businesses can reach more customers and employees.

The event is on May 24 from 2.30-4.30pm at Caboolture Hub, 4 Hasking St, Caboolture.

Admission is free.
