Access and maintain employment or higher education
We identify professional networks to assist individuals and/or groups of individuals locate jobs or higher education. Once jobs are obtained, we help employees develop skills, practices and routines that can assist with maintaining employment. We assist with resume writing and interview skills. We provide individuals with opportunities to discover what they’re good at, develop their skills, find training courses, get help with moving from study into work, and gain work experience.

Here are some ways in which the NDIS can support participants with accessing and maintaining employment or higher education:

Supported Employment: LHCS can assist you with gaining and maintaining employment through supported employment programs. These programs provide job training, coaching, and ongoing support in a work environment tailored to your needs.

Workplace Modifications: LHCS can assist you with workplace modifications to accommodate your specific needs, depending on your disabilities. This may include modifications to the physical environment, or providing equipment, or assistive technology to enhance accessibility and support your work requirements.

Job Seeking Skills: LHCS can support you with training and provide assistance with developing job-seeking skills such as resume writing, interview preparation, and consolidating job applications. This can help to increase your chances of securing employment.

Vocational Training and Education: LHCS can assist you with vocational training or education programs that align with your employment goals. This support can include financial assistance for course fees, transportation, and required equipment or resources.

Career Development and Support: You can receive support to explore career options, set employment goals, and develop a plan for career advancement. This may involve career counselling, mentoring, or guidance in identifying suitable job opportunities.

Assistive Technology: We can assist you with assistive technology and provide aids necessary to support you in your employment or education pursuits. This may include assistive devices, communication tools, or software that facilitate participation and independence in the workplace or educational setting.

Additionally, you can access further resources and information through the Disability Employment Services (DES) program, which is a separate government initiative focused on helping people with disabilities find and maintain employment.
