Your local disability employment service
Too often, people with disability are underestimated and are not expected to achieve highly in our society. Our EPIC teams in Byron Bay, Ballina, Lismore, Evans Head, Kyogle and Casino are helping raise the expectations for people with disability and mental illness, finding them jobs in their community and supporting them in that job until they no longer need us.
“My Employment Consultant is approachable, kind and helpful. She is responsive and doesn’t treat me like a number.” – Phillip
