Season 3 Episode 4
Disability Employment and Entrepreneurship
A central aim of Australia’s National Disability Scheme is to improve employment opportunities for people with disability. One of the ways to do this is to support people with a disability to start and run their own business. There isn’t much research in this area, but some new research about why people with a disability want to start their own business, the barriers they face, what has worked, and what support is available were all topics covered when ASID spoke to Professor Simon Darcy, at the University of Technology Sydney.
