WorkFocus Australia provides disability employment advice to employers.
We want our staff to reach their full potential. This is why we have made it our priority to remove the structural, attitudinal and environmental barriers which may stop a staff member with a disability from giving their best. We will achieve this through the Accessibility Action Plan 2015- 2020 (PDF, 361KB).
We also work with WorkFocus Australia, a disability advisory service, to become more informed about the various types of disabilities and to develop tailored plans to recruit and retain people with a disability.
WorkFocus Australia works with the University of Newcastle to:
The Disability Research Network brings together researchers across all disciplines and Faculties of the University whose work has relevance to people with developmental or acquired disabilities.
The Disability Research Network at the University of Newcastle, Australia, brings together researchers across all disciplines and Faculties of the University whose work has relevance to people with developmental or acquired disabilities.
The aim is to include all stakeholders in the Hunter Region, NSW, with a special interest in disability, disability research, disability research translation, and evidence-based disability policy and practice.
The Network's mission is to strengthen the Hunter Region's capacity of research in disability and help ensure that the translation of research findings inform policy and practice to improve the lives of people with disabilities and their families.
Included in the Network is the University's Centre for Special Education and Disability Studies (CSEDS), which brings together high-level expertise in research and practice centred on supporting individuals with a range of additional learning and participation needs.
Associate Professor Bronwyn Hemsley would like to invite expressions of interest from any person who wishes to be included in the network who might wish to engage through:
