We Can Work with the Right Support
Inclusion Australia's goal is to organise with people with intellectual disabilities, their families, and supporting organisations to make the promise of inclusion in the workforce a reality. People with intellectual disability can work when they get the right support. Yet only 8% of adults with intellectual disability work in the open workforce.
This is unacceptable and reflects an ineffective national disability employment service system. It’s time to change to a system of employment support that works.
Inclusion Australia has prepared a petition seeking a national system of transition-to-work and open employment support based on demonstrated high rates of open employment outcomes.
We want youth with intellectual disability to have the best support to get a job.
We are asking people with intellectual disability, their family members, employers, disability organisations, and the community to support our petition which we will deliver to the Australian government.
Please sign our petition to improve the employment participation of people with intellectual disability.
