Shape your new disability employment model

The Australian Government is committed to assisting more people with disability into jobs so they can enjoy the social and economic benefits that work brings.  A public consultation is now open for individuals and organisations around the country to share their experience and help create the next disability employment support model.

The Department of Social Services is designing options for a new disability employment support program for commencement from July 2023, following the conclusion of the current Disability Employment Services (DES) program on 30 June 2023.

It is crucial to gain insight from people with disability, their families and carers, disability peak organisations, employers and DES providers on how the model could improve employment outcomes for people with disability.

This is an important opportunity to share your views about what is and is not working in the current DES program, and what could be improved to ensure that people with disability and employers have a system that meets their needs and provides appropriate support to get the right people in the right role.
