Increasing employment and civic participation

Disability Employment and Economic Participation Project

The MAV has been funded by the DHHS through the Office for Disability to undertake a project promoting disability employment and economic participation. The project scope includes employment and work experience for people with a disability in councils.

It also addresses social enterprise and social procurement initiatives.It will showcase interesting council practices, with the aim of encouraging other councils to replicate these. Additional capacity-building activities are planned, including discussions with Human Resources and Economic Development units in councils.


We distribute a quarterly E-Newsletter on the MAV DEEP Project, featuring updates on the project and other relevant news and links. You can subscribe to receive future editions of the MAV DEEP E-Newsletter using this sign-up form.
