Choosing Employment

In 2014 Inclusion Australia (NCID) undertook a number of activities to promote people with intellectual disability ‘choosing employment’. Employment increases the incomes of people with disability, increases their superannuation, fulfils their citizenship responsibilities through the payment of tax and enables their participation in the social life of their communities.

The importance of employment for people with intellectual disability cannot be underestimated, and it also has the benefit of reducing their reliance on the Disability Support Pension (DSP) which enables revenue to be re-directed to the NDIS and other social programs of the Commonwealth Government.

Reports from our forums and activities are below:
