We invite you to become involved in exploring real solutions, ideas and activities that will bring about changes to the ACT Disability Workforce. The Workforce Impact Collective Pilot Funding Program gives you the opportunity to test innovative ideas and concepts to ultimately grow the capacity and capability of the workforce, thus improving the lives of those who live with a disability, their families and carers. The program is open to individuals, groups and organisations, but may also include collaborations between multiple parties. You are encouraged to talk to us about your ideas, however big or small they may be.

WIC Pilot of the Month

The Mature Aged Workers Pilot (Run by Achieve By Design)

Mature Aged Workers Information Session   David Hill and Susan Beaumont
Mature Aged Worker Information Session   
Project leads David Hill and Susan Beaumont

Research shows that the secret to ageing well is staying active, connected and engaged in meaningful activity. Project leads David Hill and Susan Beaumont are showing that the disability sector presents a great opportunity for mature aged men and women. Their innovative WIC project aims to encourage people aged 55 and above to consider frontline disability support work, regardless of their previous work experience.

In Stage 1 of the project, through interviews, workshops and information sessions, mature aged people have heard about the many opportunities for flexible and meaningful work in the disability sector, and have responded very positively. Stage 2 of the project will give participants an opportunity to meet disability employers and explore training and employment pathways. Congratulations Achieve By Design for your truly innovative project!

If you would like to attend a Mature Aged Worker information session on 19 or 20 November (1:00 - 5:00 PM), please contact Susan on 0450 202 426.
