Finding a Job

Employment provides many benefits for all Australians. Apart from income it can provide purpose and belonging, connections and friends. CRU aims to inspire, increase confidence and motivate people with disability and their families to make a start on the road to employment.

We can provide you and your family with information and strategies on getting started on the path to employment and working through the barriers.

Current Projects

School to Work

In the second half of 2020, CRU, Family Advocacy (NSW) and Imagine More (ACT) started work together on a new three year, ILC project funded by the Department of Social Services, to support high school students with disability and their families to engage with employment. 

‘From School to Work’ will provide information to help students and their families build confidence and explore what work could look like for them.   

As part of the project, we are offering the following webinars and in-depth workshops: 

  • Imagining Work for students in Years 7 and 8 
  • Discovering Work for students in Years 9 and 10 
  • Finding Work for students in Years 11 and 12. 

The information contained in the majority of the webinars will be the same in Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT. However some of the content delivered will be specific to the state or territory it is presented in to ensure we cover local schemes and issues.

CRU will be with you on this journey to encourage and support so that your high schooler with disability and your family feel empowered, and you can take action towards employment!
