In every state in Australia, the St Vincent de Paul Society is willing to help anyone with a disability who is seeking assistance. Some states also have employment options for people living with a disability. Employment creates a sense of self-worth and wellbeing. It provides opportunities for people living with a disability to integrate and socialise with the broader community, breaking down barriers between the two.
Disability enterprises like Vincent Industries and Tastex Knitwear, both of which are in Tasmania, and Victoria’s Ozanam Enterprises give people living with a disability the opportunity to earn a living wage.
