About Disability Employment Services in the Fortitude Valley

Disability services are a range of support services designed to assist individuals who live with disabilities. They aim to ensure that people with disabilities can fully participate in society, especially in terms of work and employment. 

Our disability employment services (DES) is a specialised support system that helps people with disabilities, injuries, or mental health conditions prepare for, find, and maintain employment. We do so by offering various support mechanisms such as individualised job planning, resume assistance, interview coaching, on-site computer facilities, liaison with potential employers, job training, workshops, and ongoing support once employment is secured.

Our Fortitude Valley disability employment services team is an arm of our Disability Employment Services Brisbane team. We believe in the power of meaningful employment and its transformative impact on individuals’ lives, especially those living with disabilities. We understand that every person’s journey is unique, which is why our Disability Employment Service is tailored to fit your individual needs and aspirations.

How Our Fortitude Valley Team Work With You

Our Fortitude Valley Disability Employment Services team work closely with participants, employing a personalised, participant-centred model. This approach is based on the belief that everyone’s journey to employment is unique and thus requires tailored solutions.

We Get to Know and Understand DES Participants

From the outset, TURSA’s experienced and qualified Disability Employment Advocates will engage in a comprehensive consultation process with the participant. During this consultation, they will focus on understanding the participant’s strengths, abilities, current skillset, potential skills, and employment goals. And then from this, the basis of the individualised job plan and service delivery will be crafted for each participant.

We Mainintain Open Two-Way Communication

Communication between our Fortitude Valley DES team and participants is open. We believe in ongoing communication, respect, and empathy. Every step of the way, participants are consulted and involved in decisions about their employment plan. And as participants evolve, so too will our disability employment services. This means we’re continuously meeting the needs of every participant’s goals. 

We Help Provide Opportunities Based on Your Potential

We’ll focus on strengths and abilities as the heart of our approach as well as potential. This will help us provide the right, individualised support, from job-readiness training, resume preparation, to liaising with potential employers. And once placed, we can continue providing on-the-job support for up to 52 weeks after starting work.

TURSA works alongside participants, providing the necessary guidance, resources, and support to help them achieve their employment goals. The participant’s journey is marked by dignity, respect, and mutual cooperation, reflecting TURSA’s commitment to empowering participants to succeed.
