Young People and Careers in Disability Support Campaign

Blurry sky

11/08/2020

We’re looking for young people to participate in a new campaign raising awareness about disability support careers.  You can contribute in two different ways – firstly, to take part in focus groups to test the campaign creative and secondly to feature in the campaign.

Focus Groups

We’re looking for young people working in the sector to take part in focus groups that will test the campaign concept. This is an important role, as it will help to ensure that the campaign appeals to the target audience, is engaging, and paints a true and honest picture of what it’s like to work in disability support as a young person.

What are we looking for?

We’re looking for up to 24 people working in disability support, aged between 18 and 30. You must be available to attend a one-hour campaign concept session held at Clarity Communications, 360 Rokeby Road, Subiaco in August. Attendees will be asked to share their feedback on the creative concept, images, wording and any other elements of the campaign and will be compensated $50.00 for their time.

How do I get involved?

If you’d like to get involved in these focus groups, please contact Amy Pepper from Clarity Communications: email , or call 08 9380 0700 by Wednesday, 19 August 2020.

Campaign Participants

What are we looking for?

We are seeking between 4 and 6 disability support workers, aged no older than 30 and the person with disability they work with. The campaign will feature their story and showcase how they work together. Disability support workers and people with disability selected for the campaign should be comfortable talking publicly and be comfortable being photographed and video recorded. There will not be a requirement to speak directly to camera if this is a major barrier.

Campaign materials featuring our selected disability support workers and people with disability will be highly visible and will appear publicly – including on social media, on billboards, at train stations and on buses. Everyone selected for the campaign must be comfortable with this degree of public visibility and will be required to sign a release form.

Support workers and people with disability selected to participate in the campaign will be required for approximately two full days of photography and video filming during August. Individuals will be compensated for this time at $200 per day.

How do I get involved?

If you’re interested in being featured in this campaign, we’d love to hear from you! Please contact Amy Pepper from Clarity Communications – email or call 08 9380 0700 by Wednesday, 19 August 2020.

Following expressions of interest, we’re holding short meet-and-greet style audition sessions with the campaign’s creative director, to assist in selecting campaign participants. The sessions will be conducted at Clarity Communications located at 360 Rokeby Road, Subiaco. Each session will be approximately 15 to 30 minutes, and attendees will be compensated for their time.
