The Australian Government’s National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) program targets the barriers that people with a disability face in successfully accessing and completing further education and training and subsequent employment. The program is available to Australian citizens between 14-64 years of age who have either a permanent or temporary disability.
A national network of NDCOs work within 31 specific regions across Australia, with an aim of improving the coordination and delivery of support services to help find solutions to barriers to employment. NDCOs help make it easier to enrol or participate in post-school education and training as well as assisting to find employment.
Community Solutions delivers the NDCO program in Region 21; which covers Rockhampton, Yeppoon and Emerald in the north, areas and the southern regions of Gladstone, Bundaberg, Maryborough, Hervey Bay, Gympie Kingaroy and surrounds.
