Learning new skills
We fund organisations to provide two programs for young people with a disability after they leave school:
- Community Participation
- Transition to Work
Through these programs, young people can:
- Work towards their goals
- Prepare for getting a job and learn new skills after leaving school
- Be more involved in their community
- Participate in activities with people of their own age, if they wish to.
We also fund organisations to provide day programs for adults with a disability over 25 years of age so that they can:
- Take part in activities they enjoy
- Learn new skills
- Achieve their goals
- Be part of their community.

Employment Enablement Strategy (EES)
The EES is a three year (2014-15 to 2016-17) disability employment initiative with the overall goal of increasing employment outcomes for people with disability in NSW. The EES has two main components:
- provide employment preparedness support to adults with intellectual disability and
- build the capacity of businesses to employ people with disability.
