Description: Ability Options provide a variety of services from 25 sites across NSW, supporting people in the home and in the community, in education, with allied health, supported and independent living through the NDIS. Ability Options assist people to find the job that is right for them, through the Australian Government Jobactive Scheme as well as the Disability Employment Scheme (DES). At Ability Option's WorkReady we work with people who live with mental health, intellectual and/or physical disabilities, and help equip them with the knowledge, skills and confidence to take their first step into employment (or re-enter it). We use a person-centred approach, and work with participants through group workshops and one-on-one sessions, identifying specific gaps and then devising tailored plans to address those areas. The service covers all aspects of preparing for work; it can include travel training, personal presentation at work, WHS, social behaviour in the workplace, time-management, confidence building etc. We also cover off specific work-related topics, including preparing for interviews and resume preparation.
