Disability Employment Services

We support our clients journey through life challenges with multi-disciplined services that include Disability Employment Services.

We aim to achieve sustainable outcomes for our clients through an Integrated Employment Service model that is individualized and client centered, led by a team of highly specialized Community Support Consultants.

Our Consultants work closely with each client to assist them in not only finding, and applying for potential jobs, but also by providing them with intensive Post Placement Support upon commencement of work for up to 52 weeks.

Our Consultants work within the community, building and fostering relationships with Employers, Community Groups, Health Care and Allied Health Care Professionals, Advocacy Groups and others to ensure that our clients receive not only assistance in securing and maintaining employment, but that they also receive holistic support so that they can thrive both professionally and personally.

We currently provide Disability Employment Services throughout the Illawarra Region, Tweed Region, the Gold Coast and its surrounds and the Ipswich Region.

If you would like to learn more about Disability Employment Services or contact one of our services, call 1800 372 000 Option 1.
