Support for people with disability​

Specialised services can help people with disability with training and finding work.

Abilities for All

Abilities for All offers training for people with disability who are not working or in training. You can get a nationally recognised qualification in subjects such as business or customer service. Courses last 12 weeks and are held in a local community centre.

Participants need to be registered with a Job Services Provider (JSA) or Disability Employment Services Provider.

Call Adult Community Education on 8226 1730 or Bedford Group on 8275 0211.

Disability employment services

Job seekers with disability, injury, or health conditions, and their families and carers can get help from Disability Employment Services (DES) providers.

You’ll meet with a DES provider who will listen to what you want to do and what you think you are able to do. They will then be able to suggest the best way to get training and a job.

When you have a job, DES providers will continue to support you for at least 26 weeks or longer if required.
