YouMeUs - Achieving Inclusion

The City of Kingston, along with a number of other councils, has been involved in a project called YouMeUs – Achieving Inclusion.

The project’s vision is to promote an understanding of diversity in the community, challenge public perceptions of stereotypes, highlight the abilities of people with disabilities and support the development of inclusive communities.

A series of short videos have been developed for businesses to learn how they can adapt and attract more customers with a disability to their businesses. 

Each of these videos has key messages on four main areas: Rights, Attitude, Communication and Access.
