Employment of People with Disability Initiative
A new and exciting initiative is underway
Several Not for Profit disability service organisations are developing ways to increase the meaningful and sustainable employment of people with disability into their workforce.
It has often been perceived as too difficult to employ a person with a disability, however the organisations in this pilot are now embarking on the journey to dispel this myth and are working collaboratively to genuinely challenge this and prove that it can be achieved and is a worthwhile venture.
Expressions of Interest
We are now seeking expressions of interest from people who have disability and have an interest in developing this initiative further. You will be part of a co-design/co-production Steering Group who will advise and guide the implementation of this initiative by the organisations that have identified their interest.
You will advise the organisations on the issues facing people with disabilities when looking for work, e.g. going through interviews, workplace environment, workplace expectations, workplace equipment and resources, transport and any other issues that are challenges to employment – as well as solutions to those challenges.
Expressions of interest need to be in by 4pm Friday, 14th June. The first meeting will take place on the 25th June 2019.
Please let us know if you have an accessibility needs.
You will be reimbursed for your time.
