Working in the disability field brings rewards to everyone – the workers, people with disability, and society as a whole, as we strive towards creating welcoming communities which facilitate citizenship, friendship, mutual support and a fair go for everyone. There are few fields that can deliver as much job satisfaction as disability services.
