It’s exciting that Sign for Work has received Disability Employment Services (DES) funding for another five years. We have already been providing tailored employment programs to deaf, hard of hearing and hearing clients for over 20 years.

The other terrific news is that we were successful in our bid to open a new office in Southport on the Gold Coast. This site will operate as a Specialist DES provider working with deaf and hard of hearing clients.

Sign for Work has been highly successful in assisting many jobseekers achieve their career goals and this further contract shows that we continue to deliver programs and services that jobseekers, employers and the government value. We will also be able to continue to provide school leavers employment supports (SLES) through the NDIS.

We just farewelled our retiring National Employment Services Manager Lisa Patience so we would like to thank Lisa for her wonderful contribution over the past year. Our staff prepared a beautiful high tea as a fitting way to thank Lisa for everything she has done for the team.
