Host a job seeker with disability for a day 

AccessAbility Day is a voluntary obligation free-day for employers to have an opportunity to see the potential jobseekers with disability can bring to the workplace and learn about available Government support. 

Employers can host a jobseeker with disability (a participant) for one day in the week from Monday 26 to Friday 30 November 2018.  

AccessAbility Day provides an opportunity for your organisation to: 

  • learn more about working with jobseekers with disability 
  • promote and encourage an inclusive workplace 
  • access a talent pool of capable people who are keen to work 
  • learn more about free disability employment services and support available for employers 

An employer can host as many participants across as many job types as they are able to provide within their organisation. However, each participant can only be placed in each workplace for one day. 

Want to get involved? 

Contact your local Disability Employment Services Team Leader today using the enquiry form or call 1800 007 400.

Auslan Activity Groups: Socialisation and Chit Chat for Children

The Deaf Society welcomes all deaf, hard of hearing, deafblind, non-verbal children, CODAS and their families. The Lismore office is running TWO Bilingual English Auslan for Socialisation and Chit Chat activity groups suitable for children aged from 2-3 years of age to 12 years of age, on Wednesday 21 and 28 June.

This is in a relaxed environment to explore basic Auslan, learn signs that are useful for children in the home, and meet other families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing. It is an opportunity for your child to come and enjoy bilingual play experiences with other children, participate in activities such as StoryTime, which will be delivered in Auslan and spoken English.

The trainers will use English and Auslan for everything, it does not matter whether your family signs, speaks or both!

TIME: 4pm – 5.15pm
WHERE: The Deaf Society, 22 Conway Street, Lismore.
