The expected outcomes for the EP grant opportunity are:

  • People with disability will have improved job readiness, employment related skills and knowledge (whether industry specific or generalist).
  • People with disability and other stakeholders will have increased access to employer groups and employment support networks.
  • Increased willingness and capability of employers and organisations to employ people with disability.
