Supported employment is a well-evidenced personalised approach to enabling people with significant disabilities to access and retain real jobs in open employment, with support. The process should start from age 14, with meaningful work experience and Saturday jobs in support of a person-centred employment pathway.

Supported employment should achieve the following:

• Real jobs with equitable wages and other employment-related benefits
• Learning new skills
• Social and economic inclusion
• Promotion of self-determination, choice and independence
• Enhanced self-esteem
• Increased consumer empowerment
• Improved quality of life
