NDIS Employment support offers specialised assistance in helping people with a disability, injury or health condition find -and keep- suitable employment. It can also provide support in the workplace and to employers.
The initiative aims to ensure that people's disabilities do not necessarily stop them from enjoying the self-confidence, independence, and a sense of purpose that employment can bring.
Starting (or re-starting) work can feel like a big step. If you want information on the options NDIS Employment support offers in Brisbane, you've come to the right place!

Employment support can help with the search and application process too, if necessary.

What is a supported employment provider?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) helps people with disabilities get and keep a job. They help people with disabilities find employment by assisting them in their job search, providing access to training and coaching, workplace adjustment support, and assistance in starting their own business.
Do I have to use a supported employment provider?
The Disability Employment Service (DES) can help you find and prepare for employment, but NDIS participants don't have to use these providers if they don't want to.
How much NDIS funding is available?
NDIS Participants can access up to $5,000 per year for Employment Support- including up to $2,000 for disability employment services provided by a support worker.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can also provide money for some of the costs associated with finding employment (such as transportation or equipment) and assistance to keep you in your job.
