Jobsupport is a non-profit organisation established in 1986.
Jobsupport’s Transition service was established in 1997. It began as a pilot project for Family and Community Services to show that many people in state funded post-school activity programs could achieve paid employment, with appropriate support. A network of Transition to Work services were developed throughout NSW from this pilot, with Jobsupport being the most successful in achieving open employment outcomes. The current School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) funding within the NDIS is based on the NSW Transition to Work services model.
The success of the Jobsupport program in Sydney led to the expansion of the service to Melbourne and Brisbane.
