Real life experiences from passionate, change-driven, local people
On May 30th, the Living Library came to life at the Port of Sale.
Guests heard from employers and employees making progress in the Inclusive Employment space, including Maureen from Marathon Electrical who employs Tom, Julie who owns 123 Cafe and Brodie who works at Jack Ryans Irish Bar and Foster Place Cafe- Maffra.
Each person was as spirited as the last, discussing their positive experiences with either making the move to employ someone with disabilities or the difference that having a job makes on someones life.
The GROW Gippsland program supports and encourages the practice of inclusive employment, which occurs when organisations take proactive steps to employ people who have experienced barriers to work.
