Yooralla is committed to supporting individuals with disability to engage in meaningful employment.
We understand that this is more than just having a job. It’s about working alongside other members of the community in roles that are valued and contribute in a positive way.
Yooralla actively explores partnerships with businesses in our communities, to create opportunities for people with disability to work with an employer to develop new skills, build social networks and be a part of the wider community, whilst earning a wage.
We can support you to transition into a paid job of their choice with an employer in the community (open employment). Ways that Yooralla can support you to transition into open employment include:
- identifying suitable employment opportunities
- connecting the worker to an employer
- providing mentoring support, and
- coordinating post-placement support.
If you want to work but you’re not ready to work without support, Yooralla also provides job skills and employment pathways and supported employment opportunities to help prepare you for open employment in the future.
