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.

More information about post school programs for school leavers.

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.
