July 2020

Welcome to the July edition of the Ticket to Work newsletter.

We acknowledge the uncertain times we are all navigating our way through and the impact this has had on employers. In this edition, we shine the spotlight on employers and share a report we commissioned that explores the experience of employers that have hired young people with disability. 

As we are working collectively to overcome a pandemic by staying at home and social distancing, it presents an opportunity to soak in knowledge and learn. So check out our new Ticket to Work website, there will be further resources available soon. 

Recently, we asked Ticket to Work Networks how we could best support you during COVID-19. Thank you to those who took part. We heard you, and in response, we have set up a COVID-19 resource page, in addition to publishing a
COVID-19 and young people with disability article. Let's work together so when we get to the other side of this pandemic, those doors to employment swing back open for young people with disability.
