Seamless journeys to work for young adults with physical disabilities (2016–2018)

Abstract:
In 2013, Australia invested $750 million supporting access to employment for people with disabilities. However, 70% of this group did not keep their jobs beyond the initial six months. Promoting self-determination, workforce participation and job retention are key planks in Australia¿s policy reforms in the field of disability services. This project will explore young people's transitions to work and, in particular, the role that digital technologies can play in improving self-determination and employment. The research will provide new knowledge for policy and service delivery and deliver a web-based platform to facilitate self-determination for young people with a disability.
