Have you sometimes felt you wanted more control over your life and more freedom to make the decisions that matter to you?

Supported employment

Finding employment can provide independence, get you out of the house, introduce you to new friends, help with expenses, and put a bounce in your mindset and day to day life.

If you would like supported employment to be a part of your individualised NDIS plan, be sure to hold a meeting with us to discuss it. We can help you into supported employment under the NDIS and provide guidance on your role during these changes.

The Flagstaff Group offers supported employment across a range of business divisions including:

  • Paper to paper
  • Fine Foods
  • Engineering
  • Print and Mail
  • Coffee with a Vision
  • Laundry
  • Grounds Maintenance
  • Packaging and Assembly

If supported employment is your goal, please tell your National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) Support Planner in your meeting so that they are aware that this is a goal of yours, and can provide the appropriate support to help you achieve it.
