||Designer Life is proud to be a registered NDIS provider delivering employment supports to school leavers and helping individuals find and keep a job.
Finding and Keeping a Job
Finding and Keeping a Job is specific funding available to eligible NDIS participants who are interested in entering the workforce. Our NDIS support coordinators can work with you either one-on-one or through group work. These supports focus on Capacity Building aimed at creating pathways that will help you to get into the workforce and build independence through your career. We will help find work experiences, on the job training and support you through key skill developments.
While the NDIS can fund supports to help you in the workplace, it is the responsibility of employers to ensure the workplace is accessible and you have all the specialised aids and equipment you need to perform your job, like a screen reader or a large-key keyboard. Your Designer Life NDIS support coordinator can support you to remain in work.
If one of your goals is to find a job or change your career path, this funding can unlock many avenues to achieving that goal.
Industry experienced trainers
Our experienced trainers can access other supports and resources outside of the NDIS that can help you find employment. From Disability Employment Services to State Government programs, Social Enterprises and volunteering, there are many pathways you can take to get into the workforce and find the right job for you.
We are here to help you find a pathway suited to you, one you can achieve and sustain.
In addition to helping you find a job, NDIS Finding and Keeping a Job funding can also support you while you are at work.
