Disability Services

ETC provides specialist help to people with disability, illness or injury to find and keep a job.

Depending on your circumstances we offer as little or as much help as you need. You might:

  • have been unemployed for a short or a long time
  • have just finished school and are looking for a job
  • have worked for years then been retrenched
  • never have worked

We will work with you to understand your unique challenges and will take the time to find out what you are good at and what you like doing.

We want you to enjoy the benefits of working as soon as possible and to do this we develop employment pathway plans based on your individual needs, aspirations, interest and skills. These plans take a “whole of life” approach taking into account education and training, accommodation, social and leisure activities, health, employment and work placement.

How we can help

From March 2015, we are excited to be expanding our specialist employment services to support people with disability in Wauchope and Port Macquarie. For further information contact ETC on 1800 007 400.
