Centre for Access is Australia’s leading training business around disability and accessibility.


Centre for Access delivers professional training programs around disability, communication, accessibility, social model of disability, unconscious bias around disability, internationality between LGBTI and disability, etc. We also deliver NDIS awareness sessions for people with disabilities, their families and communities to help them understanding what the NDIS means directly from one of the scheme’s first participants.


Centre for Access is a national training provider. Based in Melbourne Australia, we travel around the country and internationally to empower and challenge audiences to think differently around disability. We work with businesses, corporate organisations, government departments and communities to broaden their understanding around disability and help them enhance their accessibility. 


Established in February 2015 by Thomas Banks who lives with mild Cerebral Palsy, Centre for Access was born to address and break down some of the barriers which still exist in our society. We share our lived experience with our audiences to challenge the barriers and perceptions which we face every single day. We offer a competitive edge and a unique perspective which is often unheard.


But our workshops are unique. Thomas brings his big energetic charm into the room, which allows him to connect with his audience on a more deeper level. He literally gets his participants out of their seats, making them engage with him intimately so they take something away from the experience. His workshops openly challenge his audience’s attitudes and his personal insights are often confronting to witness.


Although Thomas established Centre for Access in 2015, he has 10 years of professional experience with training, facilitation and consultancy so he comes with a wealth of knowledge and lived experience to share with your team,


Centre for Access workshops often ends with a big dance party so you have to be ready to dance.
