Employment supports

I started my career with the paper run and haven’t looked back! Work and employment can be a wonderful way of learning new skills, meeting new people, gaining independence and, of course, putting some money away to spend on something special. There are lots of different employment supports available under the NDIS depending on your child’s support needs, interests, and career aspirations.

Let’s delve a little deeper into how employment supports can link up with NDIS goals;

1. Building Essential Skills: From time management to team collaboration, employment offers a platform where participants can develop and hone critical life and work skills.

2. Making Connections: The workplace isn't just about tasks and to-dos. It's also about the people! Employment offers a chance to network, make friends, and learn from colleagues.

3. Independence Avenue: Having a job means more than just a pay packet. It's a significant step towards personal independence, decision-making, and taking charge of one's journey.

4. Financial Freedom: Earning money through employment gives the freedom to save, plan, and spend on the little joys of life. Whether it's for a new gadget, a concert ticket, or simply enjoying a night out.

5. Career Pathways: NDIS employment supports are designed with future aspirations in mind. They offer guidance and resources to help participants explore different careers and find what truly ignites their passion.

6. Confidence Booster: Every task accomplished and every feedback received at work contributes to building self-esteem. Over time, this boosts confidence, making participants more ready and eager to tackle new challenges.

7. Support for Families: Knowing that their loved one is engaged, learning, and growing professionally brings peace of mind to families. It's a collective journey towards shared goals.

8. Tailored Support: The NDIS ensures that employment supports are tailored to the individual. It's not a one-size-fits-all approach but a curated plan to align with specific aspirations and needs.

No matter the profession or job role, the world of work is a vibrant space of opportunities waiting to be explored. And with the right supports from NDIS, that exploration becomes a rewarding journey, both personally and professionally.

While I've put my heart into aligning these tips with your NDIS path, the road can have its twists. Remember, these are just suggestions. Dive in, explore, and find what truly works for you. Sending you all my best vibes!
