Having a job or volunteering helps to develop a socially valued role and a meaningful place in our community. You can get a better sense of what is happening in your neighbourhood, build on your independence and feel that you a truly part of something. Finding paid employment for people with disability can be challenging but we know everyone has a skill or passion they can contribute to the workforce. With years of valuable experience, we can connect you to a wide range of employment options.

Personalised Job Development
We believe everyone has a skill or passion they can contribute to the workforce. Our role as pathway to employment facilitators is to ensure that you are matched with a role that will help you realise your full potential. This is achieved through careful consideration of your skills, hobbies and interests.
We understand that many people who want to work are missing out because they may not tick all of the boxes required to fulfill a traditional job role. That’s why our Support Workers are trained in personalised job development, creating and tailoring work opportunities based on your own unique talents. Your Support Team will assist you in discovering your skills and passion to identify and create a job role, or small business, tailored specifically to you.
