WORK to improve accessibility at Bass Coast Shire’s Visitor Information Centres has seen them accredited as Communication Accessible by Scope Victoria.

The accreditation was important to mayor Neil Rankine, who noted the area’s tourism name was a key reason the council needed to improve accessibility.

“Considering Bass Coast is a key Australian tourist destination, it is important that we are welcoming and accessible to all, and this acc-reditation shows how committed we are to do that,” Cr Rankine said.

The Visitor Information Centres are now able to display the Comm-unication Access Symbol, which helps identify places that are trained in communicating with people who can’t speak or are difficult to understand.
