Statement regarding recent allegations
08 September 2020
It has been brought to our attention that allegations have been made toward Joblink Plus that we are allocating funds of up to $10,000 for participants to purchase cars.
This is unequivocally false.
Support for participants and job seekers is provided under the strictest regulations and is always authorised and directly approved by the relevant government Department.
Any decision regarding direct support or purchases made on behalf of participants or job seekers does not come from Joblink Plus funds. All spending that assists participants and job seekers to work towards and attain employment comes from government funding and is strictly regulated, monitored, and audited.
As a member of the Tamworth community and communities across NSW, Joblink Plus is committed to upholding our purpose:
We believe in and support all people, connecting them to the dignity and fulfilment
made possible through education and meaningful work.
Joblink Plus has informed the relevant government departments of the allegations made on social media and will continue to keep them fully informed of any further developments.
Joblink Plus and COVID-19
8 April 2020 Update
The Australian Government Department of Health has released a new web page which explains how people with disability can protect themselves from COVID-19, manage their mental health, and access important services like telehealth and prescription medications. The link can be found here.
The NDIS Commission also has a web page containing COVID-19 information for people with disability. The link can be found here.
26 March 2020 Update
The way we are providing employment services has changed as we continue to stay up to date with the latest information regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
Appointments will now be conducted via telephone or utilising video technology such as Skype or FaceTime on mobile devices.
We recognise that for many people in regional and rural communities our offices are a source of information and support - we love that
about our communities! We are still here to support all people, connecting them to the dignity and fulfilment made possible through
education and meaningful employment.
If you have an exceptional circumstance and do need to attend your local office strict precautions will be implemented and you must follow instructions around maintaining physical space (social distancing) and personal hygiene (hand washing, tissues, and hand sanitiser for example).
If you would like to discuss these changes and what they might mean for you, please call us on 1800 695 625. We will be making regular updates on our website, via social media, and directly to the people we work with via phone call and SMS. Please follow us on Facebook or Twitter and check back here regularly for details.
