It is almost five years since the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) commenced in the Hunter and although there have undoubtedly been challenges it is also providing new opportunities for people with disability to live the life they choose.
Disability Services Australia remains committed to supporting people to live their life the way they want to live it. One of the ways they do this is through personalised work readiness support.
For many young people, finding a job can be a real challenge, made even harder if they have a disability as well and that’s where our school leaver employment support service can make a real difference. With NDIS funding young people can access the supports they need to build their confidence and independence.
DSA’s employment programs are comprehensive. They take the time to get to know each person – not just their barriers, but also their strengths, skills and interests.
They are really excited about the growing opportunities for this year’s school leavers who will be able to connect with DSA’s School Leaver Employment Support service in Charlestown.
Whether it’s a job you’re looking for or an opportunity to build your job seeking skills, DSA can help you to find the path that’s right for you. Call 1300 372 121 or visit www.dsa.org.au.
Disability Services Australia has been operating in NSW for more than 60 years and for more than a decade in the Hunter.
