FIVE ways to support social inclusion

The great thing about providing employment for people with a disability is there are a number of ways you can do this; the benefits are many and it’s easier than you may think.

Here’s two ways you can do it.

1. Employ a person with a disability

At no cost to your organisation, if you employ a person with a disability who is a participant in the NDIS, supports in employment can be provided for people with a disability working in open employment at businesses just like yours. 

These supports are funded from the employees NDIS plan and are provided by the employee’s service provider of choice. This is an agreement that is managed between the employee and the service provider.

2. Buy goods or services from a social enterprise or Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) that employs people with a disability

That’s right, it’s as easy as buying the goods or services you ordinarily procure for your business from a Social Traders certified social enterprise that employee’s people with disability or from a registered Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE). 

When you do this, you are unlocking social value by simply diverting your procurement spend to one of these organisation. This provides benefits to your organisation, work for a person with a disability and the social and economic value that comes from providing meaningful and sustainable employment to people with a disability.

3. Give

OC Connections wants to create as many possibilities as we can to bring dignity and independence to people with disability by providing them with access to supports that assist them to live independently and to actively engage in their communities

When you donate to OC Connections you are helping people with disabilities to achieve their personal goals and live an independent and fulfilling life.

Your contribution will be used to provide more opportunities outside the NDIS for OC Connections’ participants to achieve their personal goals – from assistive technology to achieve greater independence, through to support to gain employment.

4. Volunteer

Volunteers enhance our programs, activities and culture by utilising their skills and experience to provide opportunities for others.

We welcome individual, community and corporate volunteers to work with us to support OCC participants to live and contribute with confidence, fulfilment and self-determination, every day and for their futures.

5. Inspire

OC Connections Enterprises offers school leaver employment supports via the Towards Employment pathway. This individually tailored part-time two-year pathway aims to develop a clear career direction for participants. 

To help inspire participants, the Towards Employment pathway includes a range of guest speakers, workplaces tours and work experience opportunities. If you think you can help inspire the next generation, please reach out!

Crayola Australia has been using the services of OCCE for packing and assembly of various items since July 2011. Since the very beginning the quality of the work has been exceptional and our partnership has grown significantly. We would highly recommend their services without question, the processing of our requirements is at times complicated but OCCE manage this with a minimum of fuss, keeping the standard very high and meeting time frames. We have open dialogue and clear communications at all levels which makes for a successful B2B relationship.

Monique Lill, Conference Manager

OCCE provide a very cost effective service, it means that we don’t have the worry of managing extra staff & since they do work for so many different companies, every job has a very clear work schedule. I would have no hesitation in recommending any company to consider their services as they are a strongly managed business with clear corporate and ethical values.

Colin Evans, Marketing & Product Development, Schaffer & Co

“OCCE has become an important partner for Silicea Pty Ltd since being suggested to us in 2009. The job has always been done perfectly, every single time. It’s rare to find such attention to detail. We enjoy supporting an Australian workshop, who are competitive and also the nicest people to deal with. Highly recommended.”
