Department of Social Services
The Department of Social Services (DSS) is Australia’s pre-eminent social policy agency. Our mission is to improve the lifetime wellbeing of people and families in Australia.
As lead agency on disability policy, increasing employment outcomes for people with disability is a priority. We aspire to be a leader in the employment of people with disability; our commitment and approach to the attraction, recruitment, retention and development of people with disability is set out in our Disability Workforce Action Plan 2015-2018, which aims to position DSS as an Australian Public Service (APS) workplace of choice for people with disability.

JobAccess is funded by DSS and provides information on financial support, workplace modifications, help with finding and changing jobs, creating flexible work environments, links to career advice and training courses, connecting with employers, providers and peak bodies and a range of other tools and resources for people with disability, employers and service providers.
