The new world of disability employment
Change starts here
Everyone has the right to a good job. While employment can oﬀer ﬁnancial security, it is much more than that. It provides dignity, self- respect, friendships, connection and personal growth.
Our goal is to provide opportunities for anyone who wants to work. We create possibilities for people in our communities and turn them into realities.
We all have diﬀerent employment journeys. We want to cater to as many people as we can to help them ﬁnd suitable and fulﬁlling jobs. So we oﬀer a number of diﬀerent services to help achieve those goals.
Disability social enterprises
This service oﬀers tailored roles for people living with disability, focused on training and employment in a highly supportive Disability Social Enterprise environment. This allows people to be employed directly by Endeavour Foundation —the start of a long-term career or a springboard to more.
Supported hosted employment
We provide opportunities for people living with disability to be employed in a mainstream workplace, with a high level of support— paid and supported by Endeavour Foundation, but working at another location.
Supported independent employment
This is an opportunity for people to take the next step as a mainstream employee, and continue access to some workplace support provided by Endeavour Foundation.
Mainstream employment is the ultimate goal for many people living with disability. We support and celebrate this ambition, knowing the journey may be short or long, depending on the interests, skills, experiences and needs of each person.
Disability employment services
We operate a range of funded programs to support people living with a disability to enter and stay in the workforce.
This program speciﬁcally helps parents with children under six years old to reach their education and training goals and get back into work.
Endeavour Foundation provides coaching and education programs about disability employment designed to support inclusive workplaces and extend opportunities for mainstream employment.
