Frequent asked questions by Corporates and Government Departments:
We still experience Myths of disability in this day and age. Are these a reflection of the insecurities of Persons with Disabilities or merely excuses from the Employer?

A stereotype is a generalised and relatively fixed image of a person or persons belonging to a particular group. This image is formed by isolating or exaggerating certain features (physical, intellectual, cultural, occupational etc) that seem to characterise the group. Stereotypes are discriminatory in that they take away a person’s individuality. When in fact it has been proven that Persons with Disabilities are ten times harder working and dedicated in their workplaces.
Bernadette aims to create equal opportunities and fairness in business and social welfare for ALL. Committed to breaking the mold of how society perceives disability.
We ALL have the same goals in life, to be Financially Free and contributing members of Society.
