Supported Employment refers to employment settings that provide employment opportunities for people with disability who cannot work in the open labour market.  Supported Employment allows people with disability to achieve economic, community and social participation through meaningful employment, who otherwise, may not be able to work.

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 disability.

Access Industries currently employs over 260 people with disability across our various sites, performing work tasks such as packaging and warehouse, laundry, timberwork and sewing. Our employees with disability work alongside employees without disability. All employees enjoy the same working conditions and opportunities.
