Employment

In 2019 REAL appointed Claire to coordinate opportunities for members to participate in meaningful volunteering activities of their choice in their community, to increase their capacity and ability to potentially engage in appropriate employment situations.

REAL is also active in ensuring Local, State and Federal Governments work towards employment opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities. Opportunities are also created within the program to develop skills essential for the work place, such as punctuality, conflict resolution and decision making.

Contact Claire, Volunteering Co-ordinator, on 0414 726 378 for more information on how to be involved. The initiative is supported by an ILC Grant.
