Dylan Alcott wants to make disability sexy

 

His organisation, Get Skilled Access, consults with businesses to make them more accessible for staff and customers with disabilities.

“I’m trying to make disability sexy and fun so people understand and want to care about it.

“People with disabilities like me, I want to be a client, I want to travel, I want to bank, I want to go to restaurants and I want to do these things but sometimes the customer service and the access isn’t good enough for us to do that.

“So we’re just trying to improve these organisations to not only help the disabled community get out and spend their money, but also get these organisations ready to employ people with disabilities, which is a real big passion of mine.”
