Our ongoing partnerships with the Victorian Government, NDIS, CVGT, Education partners and Employers is critical to the ongoing success of Impact21. Their support, investment and contribution is highly valued in the development of the program.
Impact21 Program Partners:
The Victorian Government has made a significant investment of $1.27m to ensure the continuation and rollout of Impact21 into regional Victoria. Minister for Employment, Jaala Pulford, made the announcement at the inaugural Impact21 Graduation on World Down Syndrome Day, 21/3/2021.
CVGT Australia, our values-aligned Disability Employment Service (DES) partner, continues to provide education and employment support to the program to make employment imminent. It’s thanks to their commitment that employment becomes a real possibility for those who have traditionally been denied access to these opportunities. They understand how meaningful work can make a difference to people’s lives and is integral to building connected communities.
Participants under the National Disability Insurance Scheme are able to access funds to support their inclusion in the workforce.
“The types of supports that the NDIS may fund for participants include …workplace help to allow a participant to successfully get or keep employment in the open or supported labour market.”
Impact21 works with families and support workers to manage this process.
