Life Without Barriers has reaffirmed our commitment to providing a barrier-free and inclusive recruitment process for people with disability through the renewal of our DCR status in 2022.
Life Without Barriers is committed to improving employment opportunities for people with disability and providing an inclusive and accessible workplace to enable people with disability to participate fully in all aspects of employment.
Australian Network on Disability (AND) first awarded Life Without Barriers Disability Confident Recruiter (DCR) status in 2019. We have reaffirmed our commitment to providing a barrier-free and inclusive recruitment process for people with disability through the renewal of our DCR status in 2020, 2021, and 2022.
Life Without Barriers joined AND as a Gold Member in 2012. In addition to participating in the DCR program, we also take part in the Access and Inclusion Index and the Stepping Into Internship program.

At Life Without Barriers, we have committed to developing more inclusive workplaces for people with disability through our Employment Without Barriers Campaign.
As part of this practice, we continually review our recruitment and retention process to ensure we find new ways to welcome people with a disability into our organisation. We strive to offer jobs and meaningful careers for all our employees and ensure we create a workplace with open-minded and supportive colleagues.
Between July 2019 and June 2022, Life Without Barriers welcomed 224 new employees with disability who shared this information with us during the recruitment and onboarding process.
