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.

Disability employment services

If you are a job seeker with a disability, injury or health condition, Mission Australia can provide you with tailored services to help you find and keep a job.

Mission Australia also runs a free service to help businesses hire people with disabilities. We offer ongoing assistance and training to help employees settle into their roles.
