At EPIC, we see how important it is for people with disability to have a job. Work provides us with social interaction, greater financial freedom, confidence and a sense of purpose. But it can be tricky to know where to start, and that’s where EPIC can help.
“I wake up at 4am, have a coffee, read my book and then come to work. It’s nice to have that structure back in my day, and my family is really pleased that I have this job,” Denis, Booyong.
How is EPIC different from other providers?
EPIC is not-for-profit, which means our profits are reinvested into supporting our job seekers. We provide you with on-the-job support for people once you are employed, working alongside you in your workplace for as long as you need us- that could be a month, a year or longer.
That’s where EPIC is different- we’re here for the long run. We don’t just find people jobs, we are committed to helping them keep their job.
“I have found that EPIC do go further with the service they provide than other disability employment services that I’ve been with,” David, Hervey Bay.
We put choice and control in your hands
You have the right to decide what services you receive, and when. You can choose:
- where and when you meet with EPIC during business hours
- how you’d like to receive communication from EPIC
- who your Employment Consultant is
- what activities you complete that will contribute to reaching your goals
- what information is shared with potential employers.
We know everyone is unique
At EPIC we understand a ‘one size fits all’ approach doesn’t work. We take the time to get to know your individual talents, skills and personality. If you need some training to reach your goals, we’ll help organise it. And when you’re ready, we’ll help you find a job that you’re proud of.
We know starting a new job can be hard
The process of finding and starting a new job is a challenging time in anyone’s life. It’s important that you maintain positive mental health during this period of change. We have a dedicated Mental Health team to help you with strategies which promote positive mental health and wellbeing.
We walk the talk
One in four EPIC employees has a disability, which gives us a valuable and different perspective. We draw upon the insights and life experiences of our staff with disability to greater understand and meet the needs of our job seekers.
“EPIC really understand what’s going on in my life and know how to help me get through the hard times. They have helped me in so many ways and I am really grateful for their support,” Robert, Cairns.
