Disability at Work Conference 2019 Call for Papers
NDS calls on interested parties, especially employment service providers and other professional employment specialists, to help shape an exciting event, 20-21 June 2019 in Adelaide.
Our two-day national conference will examine innovative ways to inspire people with disability to access quality employment opportunities. It is aimed at employment service providers (open, supported and social enterprises) and professionals interested in the design and promotion of a broad range of employment opportunities for people with disability.
Employment provides vital social and economic benefits for people with disability, including increased health and wellbeing, reduced reliance on welfare, greater financial security, a greater sense of self-worth and a positive role within the community. In line with this, the tag line for this year’s Disability at Work Conference is “More than just a job”.
We invite the submission of presentation abstracts that will shape the delivery of employment supports for people with disability. The focus will be on enhancing access to employment, best practice and workable solutions.
Although almost all supported employment providers are now operating within the NDIS, uncertainty persists. The supported employment model must continue to evolve and provide a wider range of quality employment opportunities for people with disability.
