I want to work!

Do you want a job but not sure where to start?

The Lively Hood crew works with you, or your loved one, to identify the kind of job you would like and together take strong steps in the direction of your work goal.   We work together with you to build the skills you need to take with you into your chosen field of employment.

If you’re not sure what kind of job you would like, we work with you to discuss what drives you, what you like to do and what you’re already good at!

You will learn skills that you can use across different jobs and types of work, for example:

  • Workplace communication- how we talk to one another in the workplace
  • How to make and keep appointments – life can get hectic!
  • How to navigate the online world
  • How to think and work creatively.

“Last year, I gained employment with Southern Cross University as a Community Researcher at the Centre of Children and Young People. I work in a team of researchers on projects to inform better practice in working with people with a disability.

I like that I have my opinions valued and the opportunities that this position has given me.

Last year I presented at the NSW CID (NSW Council for Intellectual Disability) conference and the Royal Commission Symposium in Sydney.”
