Sydney Hills Local Business Awards

Disability Inclusion Award Category

The Hills Shire Council is pleased to present the Disability Inclusion Award.

There are a number of ways the Hills is becoming more accessible and inclusive than ever. Being inclusive is all about adapting the way that products and services are provided to suit the needs of the whole community. As part of the Sydney Hills Local Business Awards program run by Precedent Production, The Hills Shire Council are excited to share the category called the Disability Inclusion award. One in five Australians has some kind of disability, so making your business accessible and inclusive is good for business and for the community. Other customers that benefit from improved access include older people, families with young children, and local visitors.

Nominations/votes close Wednesday, 3 April 2024. Winners will be announced at the Sydney Hills Local Business Awards Gala Presentation on Tuesday, 15 May 2024 at Castle Hill RSL Club.
