Disability Support Service

CoAct is a leader in providing specialist help for people with disability, illness or injury to find and keep a job. We are one of the largest providers of the Commonwealth Government’s Disability Employment Services (DES) and work with Referral Partners to deliver the best outcome for job seekers, regardless of their situation.

Disability Employment Services

We deliver two types of Disability Employment Services:

  • Disability Management Service: This service is for people with disability, illness, or injury who need the help of an employment service but do not expect to need long-term support in the workplace.
  • Employment Support Service: This service is for people with a permanent disability and an assessed need for longer term, regular support in the workplace.

  • Have been employed for at least 3 months
  • Are currently working at least 8 hours per week (not including recently reduced hours due to the impact of your illness, injury or disability)
  • Are looking to return to full capacity at work

…then it’s likely you are eligible for our FREE service!
