Our appeals - My path, our future

Support Yooralla's first Giving Day on Thursday 1 June, 2023

My path, our future is Yooralla’s current campaign that aims to raise funds and increase awareness of the social inclusion gap that exists for people with disability who would like to work and how this can be overcome.

There are still many barriers for people with disability who, like others, would like to work and contribute to workplaces and communities across Victoria. Employers, and the community, are missing out on diverse talent because of the exclusion of people with disability from the workforce. We are failing to unlock the economic benefits for the individual, their families, employers and the community with this unemployment and underemployment gap that exists.

Our goal is to raise funds through Yooralla’s first-ever Giving Day on Thursday, 1 June so we can implement programs that address this complex and multi‑faceted issue.

Your support to the 'My path, our future' campaign will help build personalised job pathways at Yooralla. This new program will include key initiatives like employment coaches, peer support groups, and education and training that will leverage the discovery process for the person with the disability that can lead to flexible job outcomes.

If you donate to the 'My path, our future' campaign by or on 1 June your donation will be doubled by a generous group of donors who have committed to matching every donation received dollar-to-dollar.

By supporting the 'My path, our futurecampaign, you will be multiplying the possibilities for people with disability who would like to be in paid work.
