Disability Employment Services

Disability Employment Services Logo

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

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

Our experienced employment services staff work closely with each participant to deliver high quality Disability Employment Services for participants that are looking for support with their injury, illness, or disability to find employment, retain employment thorough our tailored post placement support and ongoing support services and for participants who are seeking support to retain their employment through our Work Assist programs.

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.
