Disability Employment Services (DES) is an initiative by the Australian Government to help people with an injury, illness or disability find and keep a job
This can include helping people to manage health issues that may be making hard to get work, identifying their strengths and work capabilities, developing skills for jobs and being part of a workplace and succeed when they start a new job with further information and support. APM is Australia’s largest contracted provider of Disability Employment Services and they deliver support programs to eligible people across the country. They believe everyone is capable of work. If you’re living with an injury, illness or disability and want to find a job, they’re here to help.
Their experienced employment consultants can understand the barriers you face, but they focus on how they can help you successfully achieve your goals. They have been helping people find and stay in employment for more than 20 years, and they’ve seen first-hand the value and health benefits a secure job can bring.
If you’re employed but worried about losing your job because of an injury, illness or disability, they can help. Their Work Assist program helps you and your employer access support to keep you at work. They are committed to helping people reach their goals and improve their lives.
