What is a pathway to employment?
Volunteering is widely recognised as a platform that allows people to build skills, create social and professional networks, and contribute to their community. Through the Program, we match participants with meaningful volunteering roles that help build the skills, experience, and confidence needed to work towards employment goals.
The Inclusive Volunteering Pathways to Employment Program also offers training, resources, and one-on-one support to organisations. This encourages organisations to evolve their inclusion policies and remove barriers, allowing them to effectively engage volunteers living with disabilities. By helping organisations break down the stigma and misconceptions around disability and mental health conditions, and embed inclusion within their practices, the Inclusive Volunteering Pathways to Employment Program aims to open more volunteering and employment doors to all members of our community – resulting in everyone having equal opportunity to participate in volunteering and paid employment.
The Inclusive Volunteering Pathways to Employment Program works with participants who:
are living with disability or a mental health condition
are seeking employment
are interested in volunteering
