With the recent news that Activ will be closing their employment services at the end of July 2022, we are conscious that this may be a difficult and uncertain time for some Participants and families. We are sure that there may be many uncertainties to navigate through in the coming weeks and months. Down Syndrome WA is able to support people with Down Syndrome who are losing their employment as a result of the Activ closures. We do already offer a large range of employment services, including; • The Discovery Process, working one on one with participants to discover your work goals, dream job, strengths • Get Ready for Work program that may assist in transition into the broader workforce, preparing resumes, how to prepare for work • Employment connection and job matching of our participants with prospective employers, and • Employment Mentoring, one to one, employment support in the workplace The Employment Connections program has been running at DSWA since 2020 and has been successful in a number of placements for participants in Open Employment roles, and providing participants that have existing roles in the workplace, further develop their skills and confidence. We can offer short and long-term support. If there is any way that Down Syndrome WA can provide assistance to you, please do not hesitate to reach out. Personally, as CEO, I can be available for calls outside of business hours to provide support to members and families who work and/or do not have access to our service during traditional office hours. If there is a way we can support you to navigate this change, we are here to assist. Please reach out by email in the first instance, ceo@downsyndromewa.org.auWarmest regardsCassandra ...
