Make a difference in a person's life.
With so many people in our community being impacted by the pandemic, partnering with Uniting is an opportunity to give someone living with a disability a new opportunity.
Employment funding that makes a real difference
Supported Wage System.
To help businesses employ people living with disability, the federal government has set up the Supported Wage System (SWS). The SWS is set up for employees with disability who are not able to perform jobs at the same capacity as someone without a disability.
Under SWS, special workplace arrangements are created so that employers can pay fair wage to a person with disability based on their capacity to perform the role.
Under the SWS program, your business can receive up to 8 hours of supported wages and receive ongoing support from our team.
