What is Supported Employment
Supported Employment refers to employment settings that provide employment opportunities for people with disabilities who cannot work in the open labour market. Supported Employment allows people with disabilities achieve economic, community and social participation through meaningful employment, who otherwise, may not be able to work at all.
Access Industries has successfully been providing Supported Employment across New South Wales since 1949. Through effective planning, training and ongoing support we are able to break down barriers to employment for people with disabilities.
Access Industries currently employ circa 250 people with disabilities across our various sites, performing work tasks such as packaging and warehouse, laundry, timberwork and sewing. Our employees with a disability work alongside employees without a disability, all employees enjoy the same working conditions and opportunities.
While we do receive recurrent support from the Federal Government under the Disability Services Act, we are still a business that prides itself on providing a supportive and professional workplace that delivers quality products for our customers. We deliver ‘best practice’ service delivery in accordance with the National Standards for Disability Services and the NDIS Practice Standards.
