Employ-my-ability Project wins a Prime Minister’s Award

Employ-my-ability Project wins one of eight Prime Minister’s Awards


DDWA congratulates NSW’s “Employ-my-ability Project” which won a Commendation in the Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Public Sector Management 2017.

Employ-my-ability is a successful transition to work program from Sydney Local Health District, leading school leavers with intellectual disability into meaningful, paid employment.

Since 2008, over 89 per cent of people with disabilities seeking employment in the open market have been successful, compared to the industry average of 30 per cent in the Sydney region (as at 2016).

Employ-my-ability received one of only eight awards presented across all levels of government nationally.
