Road to employment is a 3-year Department of Social Services (DSS) funded project run by JFA Purple Orange to address barriers to employment. This interim report is about the project implementation, up until September 2021.
Road to employment uses a life course approach from childhood to adulthood to change work expectations about people living with disability. The premise of the project is that the way the community thinks about and perceives disability needs to change for people with disability to participate equally in education and work and reach their full potential.
The project works with stakeholders – parents, teachers, students in school communities and employers and workplaces - to influence employment expectations. This report presented the interim evaluation findings.
