“My son needed some extra support, so we needed to find a place who was best equipped for him. That was Product Action.”
Product Action provides supported employment for NDIS participants, tailored to each individual’s needs.
We are a small boutique service with a person-centred approach to support people with a disability. We assist in maintaining employment and developing interpersonal and work-based skills through participation in real, meaningful work in a supportive factory environment.
In partnership with our staff, their families and/or caregivers, we provide:
- Skills development
- Ongoing support with work tasks
- Workplace conditions negotiation
- Referral to other agencies or community facilities
- Information provision.
Our employees learn more than just workplace skills. We see great developments in their confidence, self-worth, independence and basic living skills.
Supported employees must be NDIS participants and be able to work at least 8 hours per week. A goal relating to employment such as ‘finding and keeping a job’ will need to be included in your NDIS plan. We would suggest that you read through the information provided by the NDIA on accessing the NDIS.
For more information about employment options, the NDIS, work experience, the waiting list, eligibility or our services, please speak to Kate, Product Action’s Client Services Coordinator.
