IncludeAbility Illawarra Employment Pilot

IncludeAbility Illawarra Employment Pilot

IncludeAbility is a disability employment project that aims to improve employment opportunities for people with disability. Through IncludeAbility, The Disability Trust will put forward eligible job seekers to interested employers. We have many people with disability in our Disability Employment Services program who are interested in gaining employment and benefiting from economic participation. All outcomes of the Pilot are being assessed by Swinburne University’s Centre for Social Impact, who have been engaged by the Australian Human Rights Commission to evaluate IncludeAbility.

Get Involved

Participation in the pilot will involve the following:

  • Working with The Disability Trust to employ at least one person with disability matched to a role in your organisation.
  • Employment offered for a minimum of 13 weeks at a minimum of 15 hours per week.
  • Ongoing support from The Disability Trust to identify, employ and onboard the employee(s) by Monday 6th February 2023 and address concerns as they arise.
  • Participation in three online feedback sessions facilitated by the IncludeAbility Project to review and share findings.
  • Participation in a project evaluation and data collection framework.
The online feedback sessions will occur at periodic intervals throughout the Pilot and will allow employers to provide feedback in order to respond to any systemic issues that have arisen.
