Employment, skills & training
At Mission Australia we understand that employment has the potential to change lives and can make a difference to a person’s health and wellbeing, financial situation and even impact their social and family life.
For decades Mission Australia has been helping people of all ages who have experienced barriers to employment – be it educational, personal or health-related – to gain the skills and confidence to find and keep a job.
Our dedicated teams work closely with government, businesses and training organisations across the nation to change lives, families and communities through employment.

Homelessness & social housing support
We believe every person in Australia should have access to safe and secure housing.
Providing security and support is vital to the health and development of children and parents.
Mental wellbeing & disability support
Disability, visible or not, shouldn’t prevent a person from being active in their community.
Employment can benefit a person's health and wellbeing, as well as their financial situation.
