Do you have a question about Local Area Coordination, the NDIS or SSI?
Yes. Since 2014, SSI has supported people with disability, their families and carers through a number of community based initiatives such as Ability Links and Ignite Ability® Small Business Start ups – a business creation program designed specifically for entrepreneurs with a disability.
Yes. SSI has worked with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through initiatives including Ability Links and the development of the organisation's Reconciliation Action Plan. SSI recognises the importance of engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through a respectful and collaborative approach. The organisation will continue to seek first-hand guidance to build on our knowledge of First Nations communities to create sustainable, respectful and equitable service delivery.
Yes. SSI has more than 135 bi-lingual guides and many bi-lingual staff. Collectively we speak over 100 languages and dialects and can often provide support – written and spoken – in the language of your choice when you need it. Where possible we aim to provide translated resources and can organise interpreters.
We are committed to being an Equal Opportunity Employer and since we work with people from diverse cultural and social backgrounds with varied life experiences, physical abilities and skills we encourage applications from people of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, including people from Aboriginal & Torres Strait Island heritage and people with lived experience of disability.
