Employment Assistance Fund (EAF)
The EAF gives financial help to eligible people with disability and mental health condition and employers to buy work related modifications and services.
The EAF is available to people with disability who are about to start a job or who are currently working, as well as people who need help to find and prepare for a job.
It is also available to people with disability who are self-employed, and jobseekers who need Auslan assistance, or special work equipment to look for and prepare for a job.
Disability Inclusion Act 2014
The Act replaced the Disability Services Act 1993. The Act has two main roles:
1. Committing the NSW Government to making communities more inclusive and accessible for people with disability now and into the future. These commitments will continue even when the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is operating across NSW.
2. Regulating specialist disability supports and services to people with disability in NSW and introducing better safeguards for these services until the change over to the NDIS.
