Disability Employment Services FAQs

A Disability Employment Service (DES) supports people with a disability, injury or mental health condition to prepare for, find and keep a job. DES gives participants flexibility and choice in what services they receive and how they receive them.

  • Firstly, we will determine if TURSA can directly register you into our service and guide you through the referral process.
  • If this is not possible, Services Australia will complete an assessment to see if you are eligible and will refer you to a DES provider that is most accessible to you.
  • You have the choice of what DES provider you want to join or work with. If you would like to change or join TURSA, you can drop in, or call into any of our 58 convenient locations.
  • Once you have joined TURSA’s DES programme, you will be paired with a Disability Employment Advocate to start your journey to employment with us.
