WISE Employment - An outreach service to the Positive Living Centre.
WISE's Disability Employment Services assist people with a disability to obtain and maintain award wage employment within the open labour market. WISE believes people with a disability can successfully work for full award wages if they are given appropriate job matching and support.
- To assist HIV positive clients receiving a Centrelink benefit back into the work force in a supportive and client focus way.
- To facilitate the relationship between the client and Centrelink during any workplace transition thereby reducing anxiety and concern
- To excite the client to the possibility of discovering enjoyable, and validating employment to supplement, or to become independent of Centrelink benefits.
- That this process fosters support and encouragement in pace with the client capacity and desires.
A WISE Employment consultant will be visiting the Positive Living Centre monthly during the Wednesdays pantry service between 3-5pm on Wednesday 5 October, providing an opportunity to talk with a consultant to assess your situation.
