Disability Employment Services Grant Agreement

The Work Assist program is suitable for people who are experiencing difficulties in maintaining employment or meeting the essential requirements of their work due to the effects of a disability, injury or persistent health condition. If you have a job and you have problems with a health condition or disability, the amount of funding subscribers receive for their provider depends on the service they are in (Disability Management Service or Employment Support Service) and the barriers they face in finding a job. It is likely that a participant`s funding will change during its programming period. If you are at risk of losing your job due to illness, injury or disability, you can get help from Work Assist and the Employment Assistance Fund. Suppliers receive payments to help participants find and obtain employment. Payments are structured in such a way that suppliers earn more money by bringing more people to permanent employment. In the DES, there are three main payments: as a DES-ESS provider, Reclink helps permanent disabled jobseekers to find suitable and sustainable employment based on their estimated ability. Beyond the employment service, Reclink offers both regular and continuous assistance to ensure that employment is sustainable. Jobseekers with disabilities may have a number of different needs to prepare for work.

Reclink Australia works with each DES participant to meet their individual needs. Reclink Australia meets regularly with DES participants to ensure they receive the support they need. The first face-to-face contact takes place to discuss the participant`s needs and plan for provider support. Other contacts can be face-to-face, videoconference or by phone. While the most conventional method of linking with our services is a centrelink recommendation process, subscribers can also enter our services via direct registration. Please note, however, that Reclink Australia does not directly register full-time students and just starts to bring them into after-school jobs. In cases where a participant and their parents or guardians agree, Reclink Australia may deem it appropriate to put an ESL participant on the job market for eight hours per week while a full-time student. This may be done for the purpose of gaining relevant work experience or determining a participant`s suitability for a particular type of work. In these circumstances, a job of eight hours per week would be appropriate, as it is part of the jobseeker`s overall transition to a post-school environment. Given the extent of the impairment of a job seeker who has the right to be registered and started directly in DES as an ESL and the time it takes to remove their barriers to open employment, it can vary and, sometimes, placement in open employment cannot be done immediately after the start of the program. .
