One of the best things about the NDIS is a renewed focus on employment. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our newest approach to sustainable work that suits you!
After a review by the National Disability Services (NDS), some gaps in services were identified. Some people with disability who are ineligible for Disability Employment Services (DES) weren’t able to receive the funding and support they needed. There was also a lack of integration between the different employment supports.
We believe that everyone who wants to work should be able to do so. That’s where the new Customised Employment program comes in.
Employment, your way
Our approach focuses on finding work that fits in with your personal goals, interests, and abilities. We work collaboratively with Local Coordinators, the NDIS, WA NDIS, and Department of Communities to create a network of supports that you can rely on.
Once you’ve highlighted an area you’d like to explore, we work with you to get out into the local community, build networks, and find a workplace that suits you. We provide support while you work, for as long as you need.
The program includes:
- A personalised approach that highlights your interests and aspirations
- Support to develop independence and life skills
- Employment related training and travel skills
- One-on-one support around and during work
For example, you may want to work as a barista in your local area. We can scope out nearby cafes, help you get accustomed to the workplace, and support you with your daily work activities.
No matter where you are in your employment journey, we’re here to help. If you’re a student or a school leaver, you may be eligible for supports that help you get work ready.
