SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT AT HELP
Reach your goals and find the job that’s right for you at HELP!
With over 50 years of experience in disability care and employment, HELP offers experienced support to people with disability. We know that employment is more than just a job – it’s about having a sense of purpose and loving what you do.
Achievements like learning to travel independently, establishing and maintaining positive work-based relationships, being part of a team, following directions in a professional way and feeling like a valued member of a team, are all elements of working life that can be easily taken for granted.
Meaningful connections for people with disability and impairment
Supported employment provides paid and meaningful work opportunities for people with disability so that you can experience working life and everything that comes with it!
At HELP, we offer many jobs for people with disability and have Employment Support Officers that work alongside you to provide any additional support you might need.
Supported Employment can help you:
- Learn new skills (for work and life)
- Build confidence and self esteem
- Become more independent
- Earn your own money
- Establish and maintain positive work based relationships
- Work together as a team
- Explore new industries and areas of interest
- Meet new people and make lifelong friends
- Upskill for open employment.
