Attitudes Matter: Community attitudes toward people with disability in Australia

Attitudes are a major concern for Australians with disability. They are related to disability-based discrimination and social exclusion, which in turn impact the health and wellbeing of people with disability. This report describes findings from the first national survey on attitudes toward people with disability.

The survey examined personal feelings and behaviours toward people with disability in the workplace, at school and in public, as well as perceptions of how people with disability are treated in the community.

The report has strong signals for business and government about the need for interventions that seek to combat attitudes across organisational and structural levels of society.
