Disability Employment Services

Specialist Disability Employment Support

Specialist Disability Employment Support

A job means financial independence, but is more than that. It brings dignity, a place in the world and an opportunity to make a contribution.  We are experienced in helping people with disabilities and mental health issues find meaningful employment.

Our services are always focused on your needs, and our support is always designed around the individual. We call this approach ‘Person First Planning’ because we always start with you. You may be a person with disability seeking 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 work with you to understand your unique challenges for continuing or entering education or employment.

 

Employer Support

We provide a free recruitment service to employers and can assist employers to improve the ergonomics of their work environment.

At Risk of Losing Your Job?

If you are at risk of losing your job because you are ill, injured, or have a disability, assistance is available to see what can be done to keep you with your current employer. We can provide:

  • advice about redesigning your job so you can keep working
  • workplace assessment to see how it can be changed to make it easier for you to work support to manage your injury, disability or health condition
  • specialised equipment to help you keep your job.
