We believe that everyone has the right to work. We want to make sure that people with disability have options and choice in their employment, the right support to find and keep a job and equal pay.

We know that there are lots of barriers to employment for people with disability. We believe it’s important to remove these barriers and have good systems in place that help people learn and work.

Submissions and consultations

Ensuring people with disability have a voice on issues that affect them is at the heart of what we do.

Our members experience multiple issues when dealing with the employment market. We know that people with disability must be part of the solution. They should be actively involved in the design, conduct and evaluation of the jobs market.
