About employment support

Supported employment

Supported employment is about supporting people with a disability, injury or health condition to be effectively and appropriately engaged in the workforce. The goal of supported employment is to enable people with a disability to work in a way that provides them with job satisfaction, skills development and financial benefits and opens up career paths for them.

In going some way to creating a more inclusive Australia, supported employment opportunities exist to help people with a disability participate in society in a meaningful and productive way. The desire of those who provide supported employment is to develop seamless and clear pathways for people to move from supported into open employment and to see people with a disability more actively involved in their choice of employment rather than being limited to a particular field or workplace.
