Disability Beyond Boundaries is being established for and by people with disability with the aim of raising awareness of the unique needs of customers with disability within our local community's fashion and self-care businesses and service providers.
We have focussed on such businesses and service providers because of the vital link between personal presentation and self-esteem. We aim to empower people with disability to confidently request assistance from local fashion and self-care businesses and service providers. As such, an important facet of our project will involve the distribution of educational materials and the running of information workshops to foster understanding and communication between the businesses and service providers and their customers with disability.
Ultimately, we want to create an online directory of fashion and self-care businesses and services that people with disability can confidently contact for assistance, knowing that their unique needs will be understood, and that they will enjoy a friendly and accessible experience.
