Rise and other Not for Profit disability service organisations are developing ways to increase the meaningful and sustainable employment of people with disability into their workforce.

Employing people with disability attracts new skills and brings a wealth of creativity and innovation in all aspects of the business. We recognise people with disability have the skills, knowledge and experience to advise Rise on the policies, plans and services that directly impact them.

We are now collaborating with people who have disability. They are part of a co-design/co-production Steering Group who advise and guide the implementation of this initiative

The group advises Rise and other organisations on the issues facing people with disabilities when looking for work, e.g. going through interviews, workplace environment, workplace expectations, workplace equipment and resources, transport and any other issues that are challenges to employment – as well as solutions to those challenges.
