If you are thinking about finding or returning to employment after your acquired brain injury (ABI), your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan can assist you.
This Service is for:
You may be thinking about work similar to what you have previously done, or you may be wondering what other type of work might be better suited to you following your injury.
Utilising Your NDIS Plan to Help You Find and Keep a Job
Assistance with finding and keeping a job can be funded from either the Capacity Building part of your NDIS plan or you can utilise your Core Support allocation. In utilising your NDIS plan to find a pathway to work you can do, paid or volunteering, BISA recommends that you may need some of both.
BISA can work with you to utilise your NDIS plan to progress towards your goal of work. Therapy staff can work with you to identify your specific skills and abilities, and help you identify what you need to avoid in management of your brain injury in a workplace, finding a way forward.
Once your goal for employment is established it may be that you are best assisted to achieve it through a DES or Disability Employment Service provider. Alternatively, BISA may assist you progress to job seeking and utilising support funded from your NDIS plan to take up opportunities identified.
