4. The Government is already working with the community to identify ways to make community business more accessible to people with disabilities in the ACT. The Access City Reference Group consists of representatives from community and government bodies, and the group has the task of identifying community access problems that people with a disability experience and ways to address these problems. Disability ACT funds a community organisation to conduct an information and referral service for use by the community to identify access problems in the ACT. This hotline can be used to refer concerns people may have with accessing private businesses, including service stations.
