There are a number of ways the Northern Beaches 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 Northern Beaches Local Business Awards program run by Precedent Production, Northern Beaches Council has had the honour of sponsoring the Disability Inclusion award over the last three years. 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 and overseas visitors.
