A More Inclusive Approach to Employment
A number of practical supports and allowances are available to your company to proactively assist the participation of people with a disability in the workforce. If you have not employed a person with a disability before, or wish to retain an employee who has acquired an impairment or illness, we can provide the funding to make it happen for you. Employers may take advantage of the following supports:
- The EmployAbility Service
- The Wage Subsidy Scheme
- The Reasonable Accommodation Fund for the Employment of people with disabilities, comprising the Workplace Equipment and Adaptation Grant, the Personal Reader Grant, the Job Interview Interpreter Grant and the Employee Retention Grant
- The Disability Awareness Training Support Scheme
Contact details for all of these supports (except the EmployAbility Service) can be accessed here.
