The Office for Disability Issues is seeking business people to champion accessibility of products and services for disabled people.
The Office for Disability Issues is seeking disability sector champions in 6 new sectors.
In February 2017, 11 sector champions were announced who are using their influential status as leaders in their sectors to drive improvements to the accessibility, and quality, of services and facilities in their sector.
However, while these champions have all made great progress on this agenda in their respective sectors, there is much more to do to provide equal opportunities and choice for disabled people across the whole of society.
So, they are issuing a call for business people to become sector champions initially for a year, in each of the following sectors:
- leisure – pubs, restaurants and so on
- arts and culture – for example, theatre, cinema, museums
It is their hope that these Champions will become a catalyst for change. They need champions who are ambitious, passionate and dynamic, with strong networks and the ability to reach out to a wide range of organisations and to create momentum for change.
They would be grateful for expressions of interest from people who are ready for this challenge and would welcome the opportunity to work within their sector and beyond to deliver on these goals.
