Work First Employment is an innovative suite of person-centred disability employment services underpinned by Customised Employment delivered with fidelity to the evidence base for practice. Our approach is based on local and international evidence for best practice in disability employment and supported with the input of leaders in disability employment across the world.

Work First Employment works with individuals who are self-managed and plan managed participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Age is no barrier to accessing our services. Participants may still be in school needing support to understand their potential employment journey, about to leave school or simply have finished school and haven’t been supported to undertake a journey to employment. Our clients are as young as thirteen and well, we don’t put a limit on your age. Your age shouldn’t be a barrier that prevents you from pursuing your employment dream.

Work First Individual Employment delivers Customised Employment and Discovery working with people with disabilities or barriers to employment to find meaningful paid employment in the community. It is based on the individual’s strengths, skills, interests, ideal conditions of employment and the business needs of the employer. True mutuality!

Work First is the disability employment service arm of the Centre for Disability Employment Research and Practice, an internationally recognised leader in disability employment research and innovation.
