Support for people with disability​

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

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.
