Disability Employment Toolkit

This toolkit has been designed by the Disability Services Commission in partnership with the Public Sector Commission. It is designed to complement See my abilities: An employment strategy for people with disability and do the following:

  • highlight existing programs, traineeships and opportunities available in the WA public sector
  • provide a ‘how to guide’ for ensuring recruitment, selection and retention practices are inclusive and accessible
  • dispel myths and provide answers to frequently asked questions.


The toolkit brings together information from around Australia and places it in Western Australian context. The Commission acknowledges that much of the information has been sourced from existing documents, websites and organisations.
