Working together is what makes the difference for our communities 

We work closely with businesses and industry every day to build inclusive practices, improve equality and ensure every person has access to employment.

Our collaborations are many, and they are formal and informal – from meeting in a boardroom to having a chat at a sports event.

Our partnerships are a shared vision for developing pathways to employment for people of all ages and abilities, from seeking positive outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in all communities, to ensuring young people have the support they need to make life-changing decisions.

They help us open doors and create amazing futures.

What is a partnership?

A partnership is an agreement between two or more organisations to share responsibilities of a combined goal.
