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.

To be eligible for Disability Employment Services, you must:

  • Have a disability, injury or mental health condition
  • Be an Australian resident or eligible visa holder aged 14 to 65
  • Be at or above the minimum working age in your state or territory.
  • Be able to work between 8 and 30 hours a week.
  • Not be studying full time.
  • Not be currently working at or above your Employee Benchmark hours.

No. TURSA also supports participants who have injuries or mental health conditions to obtain and sustain a job.

No. The DES program is funded by Australia’s Federal Government and has no cost associated with participants.

If you are currently with another provider and wish to swap to TURSA, call your local office for assistance by using our location finder.

The Eligible School Leaver (ESL) program is designed to help you transition from school to work. The TURSA team will work with you to discover your career goals and ambitions and help you develop a plan to get there while completing your schooling. While the ESL program is typically for year 12 students, support can be considered for any student transitioning into the workforce, while completing their final year of schooling.
