Our Work Assist program provides support to employers and employees through assessments, training, modifications, equipment, job redesign as well as access to allied health services.
Work Assist is funded by the Australian Government and is provided at no cost to your business.
We work with you and your employee to find solutions to help them stay at work.

We’re dedicated to helping your employee whatever their circumstances.
Physical injuries such as back, shoulder and neck issues don’t mean you have to lose a star employee.
We can help you and your team access health professionals and special equipment to carry out work where appropriate.
If you have an employee recovering from illness, you may need support helping them adjust at work.
As part of our service we provide coping strategies and referral services to assist your employee.
Our Work Assist service also includes mental health support to help with issues such as depression, anxiety or stress-related conditions.
This includes job redesign strategies and access to counsellors or other allied health professionals.
As a member of the Australian Government’s National Panel of Assessors, APM provides thorough, accurate assessments to determine support needs for people with disability in the workplace.
We provide assessments for three types of support:
Ongoing Support assessments to enable a person with disability to maintain employment in your current job.
Employment Assistance Fund to assess your workplace and your employee’s role to see if work related modifications, tools or equipment are needed.
Supported Wage System for people who are not able to work at the same productivity levels as their co-workers due to the effects of an injury or disability.
If you have a team member worried about losing their job as a result of an injury, illness or disability, contact us today to see how we can help.
