National Mental Health and Disability Employment Strategy
This Strategy sets out a number of priority actions to assist Australians with a disability, including mental illness, into work.
Find out more about it on the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations website.
Disabled Australian Apprentice Wage Support payments are made to employers who:
- employ an eligible Australian apprentice with a disability who finds it difficult to get an approved apprenticeship because of his or her disability
- currently employ an Australian apprentice who has acquired a disability during his or her apprenticeship and needs help as a result.
Tutorial, interpreter, and mentor services are available to Australian apprentices who have been assessed as eligible for Disabled Australian Apprentice Wage Support and need extra help with their off-the-job training.
For more information about this disability program or questions on employment help for job seekers with a disability, illness, or injury, call 132 717, or visit a local DHS Service Centre.
