The logic for reform: employment for people with intellectual disability in Australia

Explaining the Evidence for Reform Series
Disability employment Disability services Intellectual disability People with disability Australia

The Centre for Social Impact (CSI) has undertaken a range of research related to the employment needs of people with disability over several years, in addition to a substantial body of research related to social enterprise. The Explaining the Evidence for Reform Series, commissioned by Inclusion Australia, draws on this research and synthesises its evidence in relation to people with intellectual disability. In addition, CSI researchers undertook a rapid review of evidence relating to the Australian Disability Enterprises (ADE) sector drawing on published studies, policies and reports; the publicly available aspects of the Buyability data set (managed by the National Disability Services); and a desktop review of ADEs. Together, this research base was organised to present evidence in five papers, and this paper, ‘Logic for Reform’ as an overview of the underpinning logic emerging from the research.
