The evolution of employment services under the paradigm shift of the NDIS and the move to client choice and control will require organisations to create individual solutions unique to their setting. In a sense this is the same process that clients will demand of service providers; unique, individualised custom solutions that meet their dreams, expectations and future career goals.
These solution aren’t found in repeating the past, nor are they found by throwing everything that you’ve done out and starting again. That’s a surefire way to create a level of anarchy and uncertainty that will surely destroy your organisation. Not a good outcome!

At our heart we’re practitioners first and researchers second.

Add to this the steady progression of DES towards real choice and control, it isn’t difficult to envisage a different future for disability employment. Real choice, real control and real portability that will usher in demands for a new type of service that isn’t simply about a job, but one that is individually meaningful, promotes self determination and supports real inclusion and community cohesion.
