ACCAN was honoured to receive the 2011 Organisation of the Year Award at the Australian Sign Language Interpreters’ Association (ASLIA) NSW & Deaf Australia (NSW) awards ceremony held in Sydney on Saturday April 21.
As an organisation ACCAN is committed to accessibility issues and we are fortunate to have two specialist disability policy advisers on our team. ACCAN is dedicated to ensuring interpreters and captioning are available at all our public events, that our website is WCAG 2.0AA compliant. We also make information available in Auslan, audio formats and Easy English wherever possible.
ACCAN also has a Disability Action Plan, which we have in place to improve access, inclusion and participation for people with disability.
We think it’s important that ACCAN leads by example when it comes to communications. That’s why the recognition from ASLIA NSW means so much to us.
ACCAN would like to thank everyone who voted for us and congratulate W.I.L.M.A. Women’s Health Centre and Westpac for their nomination in the same category.
