About Supported Employment

For people with a disability who need a little bit of extra support on the job, we have many Australian Disability Enterprises throughout Sydney in Ingleburn, Marrickville, Minto and Prestons where you can find a job to suit your skills – in a variety of areas such as packaging, labelling, shrink wrapping, mailing, bundling and so much more.

Our Supported Employment offers you so much more than just a job – you will learn new skills, make friends, belong to a community and have fun! Our ADEs employ over 483 supported staff across our 5 sites. Afford’s ADE employees gain a sense of purpose, fulfilment and independence through their job. Our supervisors at the workplaces are trained in working with staff who have varying levels of skill and abilities.
