Employment Support to find meaningful work

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 are a genuine contributor to the community.

 

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, our Workplace Champions Mentors provide employment support to assist individuals with disabilities to successfully develop soft skills in employment. They will continue with on the job training and working with the employer for the possibility of sustainable ongoing employment. We support you to find a job, settle into the job and ongoing employment support services for a long as is required.

Collective Care Supports thrive on delivering person-centered services by understanding the unique needs and challenges of each participant. We aim to deliver tailored employment opportunities to assist all participants in achieving their career goals.

School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES)

If you are a person with a disability, are in the final years of schooling and have a current NDIS plan, you may be eligible for School Leaver Employment Supports. You may be able to receive supports for up to two years that are focused on improving employment opportunities and getting you work-ready.

Your Interchange supports are tailored specifically to you and your employment goals. They can include things such as work experience and skills development e.g. time management, travelling, money handling, taking instructions and understanding expectations.

Our School Leaver Employment Supports follow an individualised, person-centred approach to develop skills and confidence in a young person, while also keeping you in the driver’s seat.

Personalised Job Development

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 Workplace Champions Mentors 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.

Volunteering

Volunteering is unpaid work. However it can be a great first step to getting paid work. Being a volunteer has lots of benefits. It’s also a great way to gather work experience, see if you like a certain area of work and build personal and work related relationships. You would be part of something, might feel more connected, and get a better sense of what’s happening in your community.

We can help you gain work experience in the field you are interested in and increase your work skills and general wellbeing. Most importantly, this could be the first steps on the pathway to future employment.
