Finding & Keeping a Job

Support to have a career

Choosing a career and being part of the workforce is a big decision for all of us. Get advice and support to find a course at TAFE, university, or another educational institution, then find and keep a job that puts you on the right track to achieve your career goals.

If you are an NDIS participant and have been approved for the support category ‘finding & keeping a job’ in your NDIS plan, you can access the supports below.

Supports


Assistance to access and maintain employment or higher education

We support you to research study options, find a job, and maintain your employment at all stages of your life. This includes:

  • Employment support, by yourself or within a group
  • Support for people who have left school
  • Help to transition through school and further education
  • Therapeutic supports

We provide therapeutic supports to help you apply or strengthen the skills you need to find and keep a job, including:

  • Language and communication
  • Personal care such as dressing and grooming
  • Mobility and movement
  • Interacting with other people
  • Community living

Support categories

Each support category contains a number of services that you can choose from to help achieve your goals. You can use your budget for any of services within that support category, but you are unable to use this budget for services within another support category. In some cases, you may be approved for a specific support (rather than a category). In this case, you will need to use your budget for this specific service only. Read more about NDIS plans.

Flexibility of services

With NDIS, you have the power to choose the services that best suit your needs and goals, including how services are delivered. Each of the services above can be tailored to your specific requirements, and changed as your needs change.

Why Ozcare?

With 20 years’ experience providing disability services, we focus on your strengths to support you to achieve your goals. To provide consistent personalised care, we make sure that you continue to see familiar faces for each of your appointments so you can get to know your carers and feel comfortable with them.

Cost of supports

The NDIA publishes a price list, which sets out the cost of each support. This is the price you will pay no matter which provider you choose. In some cases, a price for a support may not be fixed, and we can provide you with a quote that the NDIA will approve. Read more about NDIS costs.

Availability

Our NDIS services are open to all NDIS participants with an approved plan. We have branches all over Queensland, from the Gold Coast to Far North Queensland use our locate a service finder to find the nearest branch to you. Read more about NDIS eligibility.
