SUPPORT IN WORK

At Barkuma, we understand Intellectual Disability, Learning Disability and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Our person centred approach means we can support you throughout your employment journey. We have two factories in Elizabeth and Holden Hill that offer supported employment. Working in this environment is a great way to develop your skills, confidence and experience, all while earning money. If you are ready for open employment, we can assist you as we are a specialist Disability Employment Service provider. Our team works with you to find a job in mainstream employment by focusing on your goals, skills and interest. While it might take 6 months to get you into the right job, our long term support ensures your job can become a career. We are good at what we do, and have been recognised nationally for helping over 300 people find and keep their perfect job.
