Summary report: mapping the employment support interventions for people with work restrictions in Australia

National cross-sector scan and analysis of employment services
Disability employment Community-based social services People with disability Australia

Employment supports (ES) and services are offered to people with a work restriction related to disability, injury and illness, by multiple government departments and agencies, insurers, regulators and employers, and by community-based (not-for-profit) organisations. Through a variety of interventions, their aim is to support people with a work restriction in gaining and maintaining employment.

This report offers a starting point for discussion about what we mean by ‘employment supports’, how they might be described and compared across systems, and areas for improvement and alignment. An original Typology of Employment Support Interventions was developed as part of the data analysis and subsequently used to analyse and organise both the best practice literature and the case study and stocktake data of employment supports in Australia. The study identified a range of gaps and opportunities in the design and provision of employment supports in the insurance and compensation, Commonwealth labour market and disability employment sectors across Australia.
