A question many school-leavers and their families ask themselves is “what happens after school?”
For many high school graduates, the answer will be higher education, travel or entering the workforce.
But for graduates with an intellectual disability, there are more options to choose from. The NDIS has brought with it a new world of funding and support, and there are plenty of exciting pathways available especially for this group. In this blog, we will look at a couple of these pathways available to people with a disability and how the NDIS can help on that journey.
Even though your schooling may be finished, it doesn’t mean that the learning and social aspects of it should stop. Many people want to continue to learn, but in a supportive environment that understands your goals and the importance of getting out in to the community.
The activities available at our Learning and Lifestyle hubs are designed to help you identify and reach your goals for daily living, community participation, learning and building relationships, all the while having fun.

Employment can boost your confidence and self-esteem, it connects you with your community and can give you a strong sense of purpose. We believe that employment opportunities are a critical part of an inclusive and empowering community for people with disability, and that’s why we offer supported employment.
Supported employment is a safe, supportive and social work environment, where people work with you to help you achieve the goals you set yourself.
Here’s what some of our Supported Employees have to say about working for Endeavour Foundation Business Solutions:
“Finding and Keeping a Job (Support Category 3.10)”
“Capacity Building Supports”
Whether you have a disability or not, this is a big step for most young people, and it’s something that the NDIS will be able to help you out with if it’s one of your goals.
Moving out of the family home can be a really fun, empowering and exciting step and there are a range of supportive housing options available for people with a disability to make it just that.
Here are some options:
Whether it’s your own home, a private rental or community housing, sometimes you need a little extra support.
We listen to your individual needs and wishes to develop a roster where qualified support staff can drop in to provide specific support at specific times, or be on hand up to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This enables you to manage what you received and when you receive it, so that it fits in with your schedule and lifestyle.
“Assistance with Self-Care activities”
“Assistance with Daily Life”
Supported accommodation can provide you with greater independence while ensuring you still have the support you need to navigate daily life.
Our houses are designed specifically to suit the needs of people with disability and generally operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week with staff that sleepover at night. If you need extra assistance at night, we can provide staff on an ‘awake’ shift.
