Ella is currently working at CID and is involved in one of our large projects, More Than Just a Job.

More Than Just a Job supports people with intellectual disability to develop skills and confidence to participate in the workforce.

Through training programs and the development of peer groups, we address the barriers faced by people with intellectual disability seeking employment by developing the skills and confidence they need to prepare for and engage with the workforce.

The project is not only for people with disability, but also for businesses and schools.

The project will work with medium to large size employers to increase their capacity to employ people with intellectual disability in meaningful work. We will also work with schools to inform and educate them about the employment of people with intellectual disability.

If you want to know more about More Then Just a Job please call 1800 424 065 or email
