We’ll work with you closely to identify your needs, goals and capabilities, and match you with an employer willing to nurture and support you so you can sustain long term employment.

Disability Management Services (DMS) is a support scheme implemented by the Australian Federal Government, designed to help people with a disability, injury or illness find and keep long-term employment.

Participants that are eligible for Disability Management Services usually need temporary or short-term help to stay employed, and often need support managing mental health concerns like stress, anxiety and depression.

To find out if you’re eligible for Disability Management Services, you’ll be required to book an appointment with your local Centrelink branch and complete an Employment Services Assessment (ESAt) to determine the level of funding and assistance you will have access to.

We have a number of offices located throughout Queensland and New South Wales.


Our Disability Management Services (DMS) are designed to give you short-term help to find and keep a job, so you can work towards building your skill-set and becoming more independent.

If you need help improving mental health, managing anxiety or transitioning into a new job, we can support you by:

  • Providing recruitment advice and job-matching services
  • Help designing a job that meets your goals and capabilities
  • Temporary on-the-job support to ensure you settle into your new job comfortably
  • Training information and awareness activities for both you and your new employer
