As we know people with disability are facing unique challenges during this pandemic, including accessing employment opportunities.

Given the number of individuals now trying to access Centrelink and other employment related services, there may be insufficient or delayed support for people with disability looking for work.

We are concerned about the length of time that it may be taking for individuals to be assessed and referred to the most appropriate employment service assistance.

Disability Employment Services (DES) are able to help individuals directly who are currently looking for employment and are waiting to be assessed for eligibility.

DES Joblife Employment has been successfully assisting people with direct registration to fast track their assessment process.

If there is someone you know living with disability who is keen to seek employment and needs help getting assessed please refer them to speak with someone directly at Joblife on Tel:1800 319 502 or register online here or your preferred Disability Employment Service.
