Specialist Disability Employment Support
A job means more than financial independence. It brings dignity, a place in the world and an opportunity to make a contribution. We are experienced in supporting people living with disability and with mental health issues to find meaningful employment.
Our services are always focused on your needs, and our support is always designed around individuals. We call this approach ‘Person First Planning’ because we always start with you. You may be a person living with disability seeking the kind of work that suits you best. You may have an illness or injury that is currently holding you back. You may need to build some skills. We will support you to understand your unique challenges for continuing or entering education or employment.
Listen to how Toby, Vanessa and Sue Anne found work at Chorus through Chorus Disability Services on Episode 12 of Chorus Voices podcast:
We provide a free recruitment service to employers and can assist employers to improve the ergonomics of their work environment. Research shows giving a job to someone living with disability doesn’t just benefit the individual; the employer can reap a number of fantastic benefits, too.
