‘Dress code’ on Ca­sual Day

Afro Voice (National Edition) - - News -

THE Na­tional Coun­cil of and for Per­sons with Dis­abil­i­ties (NCPD) has en­cour­aged South Africans to re­lax their dress codes at work or in school on the first Friday of Septem­ber.

Ca­sual Day is one of the ini­tia­tives of the NCPD) and it has grown into the most pop­u­lar and prom­i­nent so­cial advocacy and fund­ing cam­paign in the coun­try.

“Dis­abil­ity is the re­sult of the fail­ure of spa­ces and prod­ucts to in­clude per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties. The NCPD builds strate­gies to re­or­gan­ise so­ci­ety to pre­vent these fail­ures,” the coun­cil said.

“Uni­ver­sal de­sign and ac­cess is our guid­ing phi­los­o­phy to es­tab­lish stan­dard de­sign re­quire­ments in pub­lic ar­eas and workspaces.”
