Project Details


Start Up Wollotuka is a partnership between Challenge Community Services, the Wollotuka Institute and 3 local Aboriginal organisations: Wadiyali; Wananga-Li and; Nepean Community and Neighbourhood Service. Start Up Wollotuka is an adaptation of Challenge's successful per-led, self-employment program, Start Up, for young Aboriginal people with disability. The Wollotuka Institute will adapt Start Up to ensure that it is culturally appropriate and safely delivered by the 3 local Aboriginal organisations. Start Up Wollotuka is expected to meet all 3 ILC outcomes as well as increase participant: job readiness; employability; self-determination; skill identification; empowerment; networks and; self-efficacy.
Start Up Wollotuka is also expected to change employer attitudes about people with disability in the workplace and encourage local employers to employ young Aboriginal people with disability.
