Disability Confidence Survey

Supported by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), Westpac Group, IBM and the Department of Defence, the Disability Confidence Survey is a measure of awareness and attitudes of small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to people with disability.

The study seeks to understand the current landscape for Australian businesses, generate awareness and start a conversation about access and inclusion for people with disability by:

Assessing attitudes towards access and inclusion of people with disability.

  • Investigating what businesses are doing to address access and inclusion of people with disability.
  • Uncovering new activities planned in these organisations for the next 12 months.
  • Identifying discrepancies between perceptions of accessibility and inclusion and the real experiences of people with disability.
  • Encouraging SMEs to seek additional information resources and training to support their access and inclusion initiatives.
