Disability Inclusion Statement (kudos services)

This statement reflects the commitment of Kudos Services to the social and economic inclusion of people with disabilities and their families to maximise their individual potential.

At Kudos Services, we recognise that society can restrict people with disability from participation and equality. We are committed to challenging these barriers to help children achieve high quality outcomes, as well as being an equal opportunity and inclusive employer.

Children with a disability share the same universal rights as all people, and share the additional rights of all children as identified in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (available here). Kudos Services aims to provide services with the goal of helping children lead a life on their own terms.

Children and Young People
Kudos Services believes that all children have the right to be valued as individuals and as contributing members of families, communities and society.

Every child has the right to access and participate in programs and activities which recognise them as active contributors in their own lives and valued as individuals. Kudos Services endeavours to provide the right programs early in life that help support their learning and development.

At Kudos Services, we recognise and value the family and support networks as a key ingredient in a child’s life, and the team at Kudos Services works in partnership with children and their families to encourage changes in societal beliefs so they feel empowered and valued, in addition to providing them with the tools to help shape their own growth.

Equal opportunity
Access to ongoing education and development is an important tool to help people with disability reach their goals. As an employer, Kudos Services is mindful of the diversity of people with disability to provide an inclusive, supportive and safe workplace.

Kudos Services upholds the legislative requirements contained in the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) and recognises the principles and values contained in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (found here), to promote the equality of opportunity for all people and prevent discrimination based on disabilities.
