Disability

We want our staff to reach their full potential. This is why we have made it our priority to remove the structural, attitudinal and environmental barriers which may stop a staff member with a disability from giving their best. We will achieve this through the Accessibility Action Plan 2015- 2020 (PDF, 361KB).

We also work with WorkFocus Australia, a disability advisory service, to become more informed about the various types of disabilities and to develop tailored plans to recruit and retain people with a disability.

WorkFocus Australia works with UON to:

  • increase awareness and education of the benefits of employing people with a disability
  • develop systems and processes for the recruitment and retention of people with a disability
  • provide assistance and knowledge of the Commonwealth Government schemes that are available for the employment of people with a disability
