Employment First

Employment First is a policy to ensure every person with disabilities of working age has an opportunity to seek employment. A person-centered planning process supports each person accessing services to identify their desired employment goal and their place on the path to community employment.

Community employment brings many benefits, from greater independence and wealth building potential to improved self-esteem and personal satisfaction And, employers and co-workers benefit from having a more diverse range of capable employees available, while the broader community benefits when all citizens are able to participate in and contribute to their community.
