Aboriginal Engagement and Employment Scoping Project

The objective of the Aboriginal Engagement and Employment Scoping Project was to design and plan a program that will provide engagement and employment opportunities for Aboriginal people within the disability sector by closing the gap in Aboriginal employment outcomes and addressing the barriers for Aboriginal people with disability in accessing existing vital programs and services.

Funded by the Disability Services Commission and prepared for NDS WA by Social Systems and Evaluation, a report (PDF 1.05MB, Word 251KB) was developed and launched in April 2013.

The report highlights a significantly higher rate of disability among Aboriginal people and proposes an initiative that aims to address the barriers for Aboriginal people with disability in accessing existing vital programs and services.

The report provides a basis for an Aboriginal Engagement and Employment initiative.
