Building Independence / Employment / Finding and keeping a job
Roads to Employment boosts work opportunities
At Marriott Support Services, we know how important it is for people with disability to get a job and keep it.
Across the country NDIS plans that include support for employment are well below what was hoped for and we are working to improve support to access employment.
Employment provides so many benefits like developing skills, economic independence, and self-confidence, and identity, sense of belonging and social inclusion.
We are delighted that the Commonwealth Bank in Cheltenham understands the work we are doing and donated $10,000 to our Roads to Employment program.
Like Ebony, a young woman who, as part of Roads to Employment volunteers in the commercial kitchen at an aged care centre. The chef has identified her talent and encouraged her to pursue hospitality.
At Roads to Employment we work with each individual to identify strengths, interests and gaps. Then with a combination of skill development, identifying possible pathways, a work placement, and core work and life skills training, we support people into a job. https://www.marriott.org.au/supported-employment/roads-to-employment/
It is a multi-dimensional approach to focus on best outcomes.
Donations like this enable us to achieve more success for the people we support.
Thank you CBA Cheltenham.
