What is Employment Support under NDIS?
Do you have a disability? Are you aspiring to have a career, learn new skills or be in an employment that makes you independent?
Achieving your employment goals is never too difficult with the right support.
When it comes to employment, every Individual has different goals and have full right to choose the work they prefer. NDIS provides you total flexibility by offering you the choice and control, allowing you to choose a support provider that can assist you with Finding and Keeping a Job.
So, what does it look like when it comes to supports that can be funded within your NDIS plan, to achieve your work-related goals in life.
NDIS funding can help you with things such as –
Assistance in overcoming employment barriers;
counselling to successfully engage in employment;
resume writing assistance; and
support before and during a job interview.
We Understand your needs very well -
If you are not sure where to start, it is important to do some homework and try to answer few simple questions below. It may give you an idea of what your current skills are and shed more clarity on what your future goals look like.
Do you already have skills, qualifications or work experience in a specific field?
Are you looking to develop a new skill? And what areas are of interest to you?
Do you have any hobbies, that may lead you in to a Job opportunity or a business venture?
Are you able to travel on your own, or with assistance to the place of your work? If not, what supports you may need to reach to your place of destination.
Put as much detail in your answers and once ready, you can then speak to your LAC or support coordinator so as to put thoughts in to action.
