It is important for all of us to have purpose in our lives. Purpose is what motivates us to get out of bed each morning and make the most of every day.
Working gives many of us purpose, allowing us to make a positive contribution to our workplace, the economy, the environment and of course the local community.
For people with disabilities, having the opportunity to work and contribute has enormously positive outcomes.
Securing meaningful employment means obtaining some financial freedom and independence and teaches important skills like saving, budgeting and planning for the future.
Working also builds self-confidence and self-esteem leading to better health, more social engagement and new friendships.
For those businesses who employ people with disabilities, well, they win too, enjoying the skills, talents, experience and good humour that comes with a diversified and inclusive work environment.
