SBS Disability Course

“It takes a lot of work to be proud of who you are in the face of persistent exclusion.” - Stella Young

A job can change the arc of a life - any life. Work enables people with disability to achieve financial independence, improve their social skills, develop friendships and improve their mental health. Employing people with disability is also good for the bottom line. Organisations that employ people with disability regularly report increased productivity and sharply decreased staff turnover, sick days and safety issues.
