On May 31st, 2022, iFLY Downunder won the Inclusive Communication and Marketing award from the Multicultural Network Zero Barriers Business Excellence Awards. We are so proud to have received this award, as we strive to host an inclusive and welcoming environment for everybody. We are passionate about accessibility and giving people of any ability the opportunity to fly their body their way. We’re also happy to have been nominated for the Physical Inclusion and Inclusion Service awards, further highlighting our commitment to be an accessible activity for everyone.

We love what the Zero Barrier project represents. For those unaware, Zero Barriers is a free business and service support project that aims to eliminate barriers for people with disabilities when shopping, using services, or participating in activities in their local communities. Businesses take the Zero Barriers online assessment to review how accessible they are, then are provided feedback on what changes can be made to make their environment more inclusive and accessible. You can find out more about the project here: https://zerobarriers.net.au/

Part of our commitment to accessibility is our annual involvement in International Day of People with Disability. We have filmed past events to help communicate what iFLY is all about and showcase how truly accessible it is.

To further assist with our communication, we created 3 versions of the last video, with AUSLAN and open caption versions posted across our online channels. It was the creation of these communications that gathered our achievement with this award.

You can view the AUSLAN version below.

We also have an Open Captioned version here:

We encourage more businesses to support and take part in the Zero Barriers project. We look forward to working with them more, in order to continue to improve our inclusion in our community and, of course, provide an unforgettable indoor skydiving experience to everyone.

We are incredibly thankful to have received the award from Zero Barriers. We look forward to the future and pledge to always provide an accessible and inclusive environment at iFLY Indoor Skydiving, and we can’t wait to continue to welcome and teach people of any ability to fly their body their way.
