Vocational Services

The Disability Trust provides a comprehensive range of Vocational Services for people with a disability including Transition to Work (TTW); an Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) and Disability Employment Services (DES).

Our Transition to Work (TTW) programs based at Bega, Batemans Bay, Cooma, Moruya and Dapto assist school leavers to make a successful transition from school to employment. By attaining the necessary skills, qualifications, experience and independence our TTW services have been very successful helping young people with disabilities to achieve their vocational and life goals.

Illawarra Vocational Services (IVS) is our Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE). It offers services such as lawn maintenance, cleaning, gardening, landscaping, car detailing, pamphlet distribution, waste removal, packaging and assembly to businesses from Thirroul to Kiama. IVS gives people with a disability the opportunity to develop skills, earn an income and participate in community life, while offering businesses a reliable, well-managed and competitively-priced alternative.

Workskills and WorkAbility are our two Disability Employment Services. Workskills is based in the Illawarra and Shoalhaven region and WorkAbility is based in the Far South Coast (Eurobodalla and Bega) and Cooma Monaro. WorkAbility and Workskills have built an enviable reputation for matching the needs of job seekers with the requirements of employers. Highly regarded by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) both services provide Employment Support Services (ESS) and Disability Management Services (DMS).
