Our RYSS Employment Support staff are available to deliver an exciting new range of supports for young people funded with School Leaver Employment Support (SLES) funding in their NDIS plan. We understand that looking for a job can be difficult, and that everyone’s employment goals are different. Our staff are here to answer your questions, identify opportunities, and help with overcoming any barriers that might be in the way of finding a great place to work!

Our SLES program offers a combination of one on one, group, face to face, online, and work experience opportunities. Our staff will support you week by week to build on employment goals, establish your own employment pathway, engage in a range of RYSS Group programs, and source workplaces for you to get a taste of your dream job! We are here to help you the way you want us to help you – you decide how you want your Resume to look, what kinds of jobs you want to check out, which groups you want to be part of.


Here’s some of the ways we can help you make the most of the SLES program –
