Timely access to Employment Services

We strongly advocate for early access to our service rather than waiting until a person is perceived to be 'work ready.' The best outcomes are achieved by referring people early on in their recovery, when they have indicated an interested in employment.


If you are working with someone who is likely to be eligible for TeAM and they have expressed an interest in finding work, get in touch with us for more info.
