Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples face unique vocational and non-vocational barriers to recovery and return to work that are best supported through a specialist approach.
WorkFocus Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service focuses on providing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients with holistic support through consultants who are trained in cultural competence.
The service aims to work toward developing and providing a culturally aware service that considers family networks and history, plus community engagement, while uncovering the motivations and any barriers to recovery and return to work.
The service nurtures:
- Links with Local Area Councils and Elders
- Partnerships with mentoring and support services
- Provision of supportive employment placement of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients
By ensuring equitable and inclusive access to the service, WorkFocus Australia delivers mentoring and support services, community support, strategic return to work planning and supportive employment placement for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
